Didier Drogba’s priceless reaction as he’s tricked by Arsenal fan wearing Chelsea shirt

Didier Drogba made a habit of tormenting Arsenal during his two spells with Chelsea.

In 15 appearances in four different competitions against the Gunners, Drogba scored a remarkable 13 goals. Chelsea only lost one of those games, winning 10 others.

Arsenal thought they’d seen the last of Drogba when he left Chelsea after winning the 2012 Champions League final, signing for Chinese outfit Shanghai Shenhua.

But in 2014, the Ivory Coast legend made an unexpected return to Stamford Bridge following a season with Galatasaray in Turkey.

He scored a further seven goals for the Blues before moving on to Montreal Impact and then Phoenix Rising before bringing the curtain down on his stellar career.

Drogba is admired by football fans across the world for what he’s achieved on and off the pitch.

But it’s fair to assume that he’s probably not used to Arsenal fans asking for signed shirts.

One young Gooner is going viral on social media after tricking the Premier League legend this week.

The lad asked Drogba to sign his Chelsea shirt and the Ivorian duly obliged.

However, when the younger whipped off the jersey to reveal an Arsenal shirt underneath, Drogba’s reaction was priceless.

As the young boy creased up laughing, Drogba said: “Oh my god! Oh my god! Oh my god! How can you do that?!”

Let’s check out some of the reaction to the clip:

Did Didier Drogba used to support Arsenal?

Interestingly, Drogba revealed during his career that he grew up supporting Arsenal.

He was quoted as saying by FourFourTwo in 2009: “I like to play against Arsenal because they used to be the team people supported in France because of all the French players there, so I was supporting them as well.”

Is Didier Drogba Chelsea’s greatest ever player?

Drogba is unquestionably one of Chelsea’s greatest ever players.

One of football’s ultimate big-game performers, Drogba won five Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups and, of course, the Champions League in 2012.

Drogba produced a Man of the Match performance against Bayern Munich, scoring the all-important equalising goal with a brilliant header in the 88th minute before stepping up to net the winning penalty in the shootout.

In 381 matches for the west London outfit, Drogba scored a total of 164 goals.
