Former internationally recognized Ivory Coast soccer participant Didier Drogba entered the race to be president of the Ivorian Football Federation (FIF) Saturday.
Hundreds gathered to cheer the previous Chelsea and Marseille striker when he arrived at FIF’s Abidjan headquarters.
Members of his group signed paperwork for his candidacy.
However, Drogba, the main objective scorer in Ivory Coast’s soccer historical past, isn’t the favored candidate to win the FIF’s presidency.
Drogba, twice African participant of the 12 months, faces robust competitors from present FIF vp Idriss Diallo, who’s now supported by the Association of Ivorian Footballers.
