Chelsea Legend Didier Drogba Grants Kylian Mbappe’s 10-year Wish

Kylian Mbappe had his decade-long request to Didier Drogba granted during the 2019 Ballon d’Or awards ceremony in Paris.

Drogba who co-hosted Monday’s event with Sandy Heribert disclosed that he denied a 10-year-old Mbappe (who was on trial at Chelsea) a picture following Chelsea’s Champions League defeat to Barcelona.

According to him, he snubbed the Frenchman because he was infuriated by referee Tom Ovrebo’s decisions as the Blues crashed out to a late Andres Iniesta goal at Stamford Bridge.

“Ten years ago after a match, a child came to me and wanted to take a picture,” he said.

“That day I said no because of the result [and the refereeing]. I learned that the child was Kylian Mbappe. I want to pay my debt now.”
