#noëlFondationDidierDrogbaDay2 With a wonderful welcome from the the People of Thomassé near Anyama Côte d'Ivoire 🇨🇮 It was impossible to resist and say no to these cute and smart students who were just asking to be able to study in better conditions. Some of them are walking 3 Km just to go to school. The foundation decided to support them and make sure they will have the opportunity to study and become the future elite of Africa 🙏🏾 Très belle réception de la part des habitants et de l'école de Thomassé prêt d'Anyama Côte d'Ivoire 🇨🇮 Impossible de résister aux doléances de ces écoliers qui ne demandent qu'à être dans de meilleures conditions pour s'instruire. Un confort qui est très souvent un luxe en Afrique. #foundationdidierdrogba #december2016 #cotedivoire #didierdrogbafoundation #anyama

A letter to Didier Drogba 


Dear Didier, 

I just read that you won’t be playing tomorrow against DC United. Which means that if we don’t make it, your time in Montreal is over.

So here I am.

Thank you for choosing Montreal when you decided to come to the MLS. You have shown you are a worrier. Inside the pitch and outside the pitch. My kids don’t see very often someone who can stop a civil war. Neither they see someone who being only 6 years younger than his dad will complicate so much the much younger opponents.

You have been a role model. That’s the way I decided to read your time here. As a human being with a huge impact when it refers to helping others, on and off the field.

I have this photo of you with Valentín, my 8 years old son. When someone comes home he will show it very proud and ask his friend “did you know that he stopped a war in Côte d’Ivoire? He plays good” he says. That’s what I read and what I absorbed from you. After that? If you play or not, if your back hurts or not, is not what matters. It’s your legacy what matters. And it’s huge.

Thank you Didier, it was an honour to have you here.
