Didier Drogba is an Ivorian forward who is most notably known for being one of the most prolific Premier League goal scorers of all time. Drogba made a name for himself at Chelsea where he helped the club to win three Premier Leagues, four FA Cups, two League Cups and one Champions League as well as several individual titles such as the 2007 FIFPro World XI, 2007 & 2012 Cote d'Ivoire Player of the Year and Cote d'Ivoire all-time Top Scorer. Drogba now plays for Turkish side Galatasaray after signing from Shanghai Shenhua in 2013.
Born on March 11th 1978 Drogba arrived as the club's then record signing for £24 million from Marseille. He has an impressive goal scoring tally when pulling on the national shirt and scores on average twice every three games.
Didier moved first to France when he was five, with his uncle who was a professional footballer, but returned to Cote de Ivoire before settling in France in 1991 when his parents also moved there. He signed terms initially with Levallois FC but moved onto Le mans aged 19 and gained his first professional contract.
His next two seasons were troubled by injury, but Guingamp spotted Drogba's potential and bought him in 2002. Didier played well there and scored 17 times when the club finished 7th in Ligue 1, their best ever finish. Drogba was bought by Olympique de Marseille where he won the French player of the year award and received a UEFA Cup runner's up medal in 2004. He moved on to Chelsea where he has since picked up two Premier League titles and a Carling Cup win in the Chelsea shirt. Drogba currently wears the number 11 shirt for both Chelsea & The Ivory Coast.
