Didier Drogba has been limited to only a few appearances in this season.
The Ivorian attacker was not at his best physically and considering that he is 38 years old, he just isn’t capable of performing consistently in every single game and running in the pitch as a few years ago.
Nonetheless, even at this older age Didier Drogba is still proving his worth as he scored a superb free-kick when playing against Colorado Rapids on April 30 of the ongoing year.
The playing career of Drogba has extended for over 25 years and throughout this period of time, the veteran player has gained recognition and credibility for everything that he has accomplished not only as a performer but also as one of the more influential figures in the world of football.
Drogba is also recognized as a figurehead for his country, Ivory Coast. The experienced player has played roles for the United Nations as a Goodwill Ambassador as well as being a representative of peace for Ivory Coast.
The former star of Chelsea has also created charities and made donations with the purpose of helping deprived children in his homeland Ivory Coast and Africa. The Didier Drogba Foundation was created back in 2007 and its primary function is to provide healthcare and education in Africa but a few weeks ago, the British daily newspaper made allegations that most of the money that is being raised by his charity is not being used for the appropriate causes.
According to the Daily Mail, less than 1% of £1.7m that has been raised by the charity is actually being used to help children in Africa. The British daily newspaper stated that the majority of the donations from the Didier Drogba Foundation are being spent in high profile events for celebrities and this of this nature.
The player of Montreal Impact responded by saying: “Despite sending legal letters and 67 pages worth of documents advising the newspaper that their information was factually incorrect and libelous, they have decided to ignore the facts so I am issuing legal proceedings against them today. There is no fraud, no corruption, no mismanagement, no lies, and no impropriety.”
Didier Drogba said that he is going to take legal action concerning this issue that has risen in relation to the allegations issued by the Daily Mail.
