Technically, this is still a highlight because it’s Didier Drogba scoring an absolute scorcher of a free kick from way far out that probably would’ve flown into the net had he been back in a Chelsea shirt facing like Jordan Pickford or something. However, it’s also kind of a lowlight because it’s Didier Drogba, a…
Former Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has been making the seemingly requisite rounds on the European star retirement circuit for a few years now. In 2012, he signed with Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua; in 2013, still an able contributor, he joined Galatasaray for a spell; he returned to Chelsea in 2014 for a…
Didier Drogba is in the twilight of his career, but that hasn’t stopped him from innovating. Look at this ingenious technique applied during Montreal’s playoff win against Columbus tonight. Magisterial!
Didier Drogba, one of our favorite players over the years who’s nonetheless closer to middle age than the middle of his playing prime, gave some of the gentle yet unambiguous real talk that former European stars cashing checks in MLS are prone to hand down from time to time. Surprise surprise, he doesn’t think the…
I don’t know what’s more endearing: the way Didier Drogba coaxes these Montreal Impact academy kids into an impromptu dance circle, or the way the kids take to it with such gusto. Drogba may well have found his second calling.
Didier Drogba announced today’s match against Sunderland would be his last in a Chelsea uniform. After suffering an early “injury,” the Ivorian earned a hero’s treatment as his teammates lifted him up to carry him off the pitch.
Update: As a commenter points out, it looks like the Drogba in the video Didier's brother, not the man himself. Sorry for the mix-up.
Christmas is here, apparently. We, however, are at work, blogging away, and as such, we were a bit ambivalent about the holiday, and the holiday season as a whole. But then we saw this video of Galatasaray and Ivory Coast superstar Didier Drogba making the days of a roomful of little Turkish children, and damned if we…
Galatasaray's Didier Drogba faced your typical Euro-flavor of racism during this past weekend's derby match against Fenerbahce: monkey noises, bananas on the pitch, et cetera. In response, Drogba's teammates are pledging to wear blackface in their next match as a token of solidarity toward him and fellow players of…
The former Chelsea-legend-turned-temporary-Chinese-league-player is back in European soccer after a winter transfer to Turkish champions Galatasaray SK. The striker was subbed in today in the 65th minute with his team down 1-0 in a league match against Gençlerbirliği.
From the looks of things, Didier Drogba was unconscious before he hit the ground after getting a head shot from Norwich City's goalkeeper. He was down with an apparent head and/or neck injury for a while, to the point that there were 11 extra minutes in the second half of Chelsea's 3-1 victory.
The Chelsea striker celebrated his 33rd birthday over the weekend at Il Bottacio in London, a big-name affair featuring appearances by Ashley Cole, Florent Malouda, William Gallas, Michael Essien and more. But the real star was Drogba's birthday cake, featuring him riding dirty with a trio of naked frosting ladies.
The Spoiler loves a cheeky little chip or an intricate Tiki-taka goal, but sometimes you just can't beat someone kicking the ball proper hard.
If Drogba plays, this might be the best game of we've had so far. If he doesn't, expect Cristiano Ronaldo's preening to be even more insufferable.
If you happen to be holidaying in Portugal today, chances are that your lunchtime platter of small sausages was temporarily forgotten thanks to a strange noise that sounded like a few million Cristiano Ronaldo fans all sighing in unison.
Well done to the 75 per cent of Spoiler readers who correctly fingered Chelsea as the eventual Premier League winners.
