Galatasaray Football Star Didier Drogba Robbed In Ivory Coast


Cote d’Ivoire international Didier Drogba was robbed in a hotel while vacationing in Abidjan last week, according to local reports.

The 35-year-old striker, who joined Turkish club Galatasaray last January, returned from town to his hotel room on June 12 to find his luggage unpacked and strewed, with €7,500 missing. The Elephants’ captain reported immediately to the management of Hotel Ivoire, a five-star establishment and the country’s biggest hotel, where several players from the national team spend their holidays.

Nobody has been arrested for burglary and the funds have not been recovered, according to the police in the Cocody district where the hotel is situated. An investigation has since been opened.

Cote d’Ivoire booked its place to the third and final round of the 2014 World Cup qualifiers last weekend without Drogba, who is yet to return to the outfit.

  1. The first time of football training equipment to search for includes blocking and tackling dummies. These dummies can be used for both types of drills, as they are simply pads that are in the shape of a player. For blocking drills, the dummies can be attached to a blocking sled and the players will practice driving the dummy backwards. This simulates what you want your player to do when run blocking, as the further you can take the player away from the ball carrier, the better the end result.
