DIDIER DROGBA EXCITED AFTER HIS FIRST GOAL AGAINST CHICAGO

Didier Drogba spoke excitedly to reporters after his first goal this season against Chicago in the Major League soccer. The 38-year old Ivorian had only played as a substitute twice in his first six weeks of the MLS season, Didier Drogba is hoping to start his first match of 2016 when his Eastern Conference-leading Montreal Impact host Canadian rivals Toronto FC this weekend.

“I’m improving. It was good to play those minutes, but now I need to push in the training sessions to make sure I’m ready to start.

“Maybe not 90 [minutes], but at least start and play 60 or 70. It depends how long I can rely on my legs,” Drogba said.

Drogba played for English giant, Chelsea FC after his switch from Marseille for 38.5 million Euros. He played from 2004 till he left on a high in 2012. He had a brief stint in China before moving to Turkish side, Galatasaray. Jose Mourinho gave him an opportunity in the 2014 season as they linked up again successfully before the centre-forward moved to MLS side, Montreal Impact.

The player has been battling a chronically sore knee since the preseason. The club decided not to play him just to be safe especially on artificial turf. This effectively ruled the striker him out for four of the new season’s first five games.

Drogba made his debut off the bench this season in the game against FC Dallas, playing the final 20 minutes of the 2-0 loss. Last weekend in Chicago, he entered just after halftime and scored a spectacular equalizer in Montreal’s 2-1, come-from-behind win.

Since arriving in July last season, the striker has 12 goals to his credit. Read more »

Morten Olsen will be ending his 16year long managerial stay with Denmark after the 2016 Euro’s

Morten Olsen began coaching the Danish national football team back in 1999 as he replaced Bo Johansson and a few years later Olsen managed to push Denmark to the qualification for the 2002 FIFA World Cup and they managed to make it into the round of 16 where they had to face off with England and ultimately lost 0-3.

From there on out, Morten Olsen has been extending his contract as the coach of the Danish national side but his time at the helm is reaching it’s end as the veteran manager stated that he will not be extending his stay any further after the upcoming 2016 Euro’s reaches it’s end.

Denmark’s Morten Olsen said: “After 19 years as a player and 16 years as coach, it is an emotionally delicate decision to take. I feel good about it, and there are two reasons for that: I do not want the distraction of people discussing ‘is he staying or is he going?’.

And the DBU will get more time to find a replacement.Now we can all focus on what it is really about qualifying for the final tournament in France. I am looking forward to the last 16 months. We have a fantastic spirit in the team, and a fantastic staff around the team. Everyone knows it is not a one-man show.” Read more »

Le Mans was the initiation of Didier Drogba’s career

The French side Le Mans was the initiation of Didier Drogba’s career at the professional stage and it was a very difficult start for the attacker hailing from Ivory Coast as he was hampered with injuries and his family life made it very difficult for the player as he was a father at the age of 21 which was the same time when he signed his first contract with Le Mans.

Even with all of those initial struggles and obstacles that Didier Drogba faced during first few years, the player managed to overcome all the odds and turn into one of the best forwards in the history of the Premier League and for Chelsea as well.

After having played for over 16 years with some of the biggest clubs and players in the world, Didier Drogba is well aware that his playing career is reaching it’s last few phases and this is why he recently has been saying words of wisdom to his fellow teammates and helping out the younger players in the start of their careers.

“When I was younger I was training with amateur teams once or twice a week and going to school.I was 22 or 23 when a friend told me to focus on football for six months eating well, no clubbing, sleeping well, going to train. It did work. Read more »
