Didier Drogba’s memorable celebration after scoring in a charity game transports him back in time.
Didier Drogba may have retired in 2018, but he was in fine form for Marseille in a charity match on Wednesday, and he celebrated in classic Drogba style.
During a charity match between Marseille Legends and UNICEF, Didier Drogba scored a hat-trick and performed his classic celebration in front of the crowd.
Drogba was part of a Marseille club that played a UNICEF team directed by Arsene Wenger at the Orange Velodrome, and the Chelsea icon tormented the former Arsenal manager once more for the sake of old times sake.
Drogba was one of the stars, along with Robert Pires and Samir Nasri, as the Ivorian scored a hat-trick to help Marseille defeat UNICEF 7-4.
Chelsea fans will be delighted to witness the legendary Premier League scorer celebrating in his customary style.
Drogba celebrated his second goal in style, emulating the celebration that brought Chelsea fans back to 2012, when he headed the Blues level against Bayern Munich with just three minutes to go in the Champions League final.
Following a 1-1 draw, the game went to penalties, where Drogba was once again the hero, netting the game-winning spot kick to give Chelsea their first ever Champions League title, which they have since added to following their victory over Manchester City last season.
Is Didier Drogba the best striker Chelsea has ever had? Please leave a comment below. Drogba only played for Marseille for one season, but the French admire him for his prolific 2003/04 season, in which he scored 32 goals in 55 games in all competitions before joining Chelsea.
Over two years at Stamford Bridge, the Ivorian went on to establish himself as one of the greatest strikers of all time, winning four Premier League titles and four FA Cups, with the historic Champions League triumph the cherry on top.
After being selected to Time Magazine’s list of the world’s most influential people in 2010, Drogba is now focusing on making a difference through his charity efforts, and the UNDP Goodwill Ambassador continues to support those in need.
