African super ‘baller and Chelsea former top striker, Didier Drogba fall beneath the grace level in his ambition to become the President of Ivory Coast’s football association president.
One of the greatest African players had zero votes at the end of the process.
11 of the 14 delegates went with their with his opposition Sory Diabate, while three persons stayed back.
The association’s current vice president Idriss Diallo was also left with no vote in the process.
It was shocking that members of the Active Footballers Association, the coaches, referees, and the physios never vote for him.
Perhaps Drogba puts popularity above politics and did not campaign ‘politically’.
Many soccer enthusiasts would have wished he won as there is dire need for professionalism in African football administration and management.
Researches reveal that African footballers struggle to lead their country’s soccer organisations – many of them bow out due to dirty politics, whilst some of them are political ignoramuses.
If Drogba fully understands politics, he’d realise he needs to try again and again and learn-n-earn through the ropes.
