Marseille fans tell Didier Drogba off

Posted: 16 January 2017 Time: 15:01

In the wake of striker Didier Drogba saying he would like to return to Marseille, a number of the club's supporters made it clear they do not want him back.

Drogba - who is coming to South Africa in May - became somewhat of a cult hero ar the club in the 2003/04 season, in which he finished second in the Ligue 1 scoring charts and helped OM reach the final of the then-UEFA Cup.

His performances that season led to his move to Chelsea and he has subsequently had spells with Galatasary and Shanghai Shenhua.

The 38-year-old is currently a free agent after seeing out his contract with Montreal Impact in the MLS and spoke last week of a possible return to Marseille.

However, some fans feel Drogba has more interest in his paycheck than serving Marseille and expressed, in no uncertain terms, that they did not want him back.

During their match against Monaco at the weekend, they unveiled a banner that read: "Drogba, stop saying you love OM. You earn in a month what we'll never have in one life. Stop being a crybaby and go back to China."
