Didier Drogba hosts £800,000 Chelsea party

Published 9 Comments

Didier Drogba has gone to the extraordinary length of presenting his former Chelsea team-mates from last season's Champions League final victory with individual rings to commemorate the triumph, reports The Independent.

The Ivory Coast international hosted a dinner for the players and staff that contributed towards winning the trophy, and presented them with rings as a surprise at what is thought to be a cost of around £800,000.

"I wanted to give something to the team so we can all look back and remember that achievement," said Drogba, before singling out John Terry for special praise. "You're my hero and everyone at Chelsea loves you," he added.

Recently sacked manager Roberto Di Matteo was unable to attend the swanky event at Wyndham Grand Chelsea Harbour, which came just 24 hours after the side's last game in this year's Champions League, following the holders' group stage exit.

Drogba is back in London after the end of the Chinese Super League season, and is expected to train with Chelsea over the winter, as the 34-year-old looks to maintain his fitness for the African Cup of Nations in January.
