Didier Drogba: Brandishing His Farewell Torch
If that’s an Olympic torch, we can only pray it isn’t lit.
First there was the celebratory trip to Boujis, where he bonded with Rihanna through a system of dance and black and white photography. Afterwards, France Football magazine quoted him as saying that he was leaving Chelsea for “a great leap into the unknown”.
Then this morning, his agent denied these reports as well as rumours of his diamond rosary beads, claiming both are “not genuine“.
Bizarrely enough only a short time later, the Chelsea striker confirmed that he was, in fact, planning to leave. He told BBC Radio 5Live:
“Winning the [Champions League] final was key, that was the turning point. We made history together but I think now is the best time to move on.”
But onto more important things on his mind (and in his shorts).
It was also reported today that Didi was going to Swindon, which is a small town in Wiltshire, to carry the Olympic torch. We don’t know whether he did or not. Or if he did, why?
Unless the Olympic authorities saw our lead photo and assumed he already had one stuffed in his shorts.
We’ll let you know. In the meantime, your views on this staying vs going back and forth, dear readers?
