In the process of national reconciliation that has been going on for some time now, the former Ivorian international Didier Drogba already occupies an important place. However, the former Chelsea striker does not intend to follow in the footsteps of his elder George Weah who after a great career in football has embarked on politics by seeking the post of President of the Republic of Liberia.
The former elephant captain of Ivory Coast does not think he will follow in the footsteps of current Liberian President George Weah. For his part, Didier Drogba intends to play politics in his own way:
“I always said: from the moment when you have an opinion you play politics. After that there are different kinds of policies. I devoted myself to my foundation and did politics in my own way, doing social work, helping people. In Ivory Coast, nobody can tell you: ‘Didier is such a party’, those who say that are liars. This privilege, I want to keep it as long as possible, “ said the former Blues at Canal Football Club.
“George Weah is an example. At 40, he had not decided to be President of the Republic. I do not consider it, “ he added.
It is therefore clear that Drogba will remain in the world of football and could lead a coaching career as several other retired footballers.
