Drogba For The Olympics


Recommended Posts

Didier Drogba last night signalled the end of his career at Chelsea by telling the club he will be competing at the Olympics next summer.The striker will lead the Ivory Coast team in Beijing in the three-week football tournament, ruling him out of a chunk of preseason and the start of the Premier League campaign.The decision will further enrage Chelsea, who already face being without him for a month from January 20 because of the African Nations Cup.The 29-year-old will miss five league games, the start of the Champions League knockout phase and FA Cup and Carling Cup ties while at the tournament in Ghana.Drogba claimed Chelsea were "broken" by Jose Mourinho's departure and putting country before club again for the Olympics is likely to be interpreted by the Stamford Bridge hierarchy as a lack of commitment."
Surely this would reduce the chance of him moving, as he'll be away for alot of the summer and pre-season break.

Weird, i thought the Olympics football was U23's or something like that. Last time i checked Didier wasn't under 23....
Think your allowed one or two over 23 mate. Heinze played in the last one, and hes 29, so would have been 26 at the last one in 2004.
