Didier Drogba Trolls Arsenal With Hilarious Tweet As Chelsea Legend Says He’s Returning For FA Cup Final
The iconic Blues great is now plying his trade with the Phoenix Rising in the United States as a player-owner.
He joked that he would be taking a break to go back and play for Chelsea against Arsenal one last time.
Arsenal beat Manchester City 2-1 in the semi-final, in extra-time to reach the final as they are now set to face Drogba’s former club at the Wembley Stadium.
The 39-year-old has an impeccable record against the Gunners having scored 17 goals in 17 games against the North London side.
Didier Drogba has scored a whooping 164 goals for the Blues across two spells at the club – and is the fourth-highest scorer for Chelsea.
Drogba tweeted: “Dear Phoenix Rising, I’ll be off on loan with Chelsea for two days 26/27 May, just to make it 17/17 against Arsenal. “#IswearIllbeback #banter”
Drogba returned to Chelsea for a single season in 2014/15 and helped the Blues to a Premier League title under Jose Mourinho, but left shortly afterwards and had an impressive season with Major League Soccer outfit Montreal Impact.
