Didier Drogba: Once a Blue, always a Blue

Some fans can’t stand the sight of Didier Drogba. Arsene Wenger, whose Arsenal side could only stand by and watch as the Ivorian put 13 goals past them in 14 games during his time in England, recently expressed his relief that he was no longer in the Premier League. But for many Chelsea fans, he is one of the greatest players to have ever graced Stamford Bridge.

A wrecking ball of a forward, Drogba arrived in west London in July 2004 from Marseille as the club’s record signing and swiftly went about proving he was worth every penny by scoring 157 goals in 342 appearances, helping the Blues scoop no less than 10 major trophies including three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and, of course, the Champions League with his last kick for the club.

Having left the club over the summer to head for pastures new in China, Drogba had long since established himself a place in the hearts of Chelsea’s fans as the man who defined one of the great sides of the Premier League era.

But what of the man way from the football field? What drives a player so influential even the Vatican released a statement extolling his virtues after his defining contribution to Chelsea’s Champions League win?

Revered as a demi-god in his home land thanks to his extraordinary charity work, you know all you need to know about Didier Drogba the striker, now find out everything you need to know about his life away from the pitch.
