Didier Drogba refused to play for Montreal Impact after learning he'd start on the bench
Didier Drogba refused to play for Montreal Impact after learning he will
be left out of the team’s starting XI against Toronto. The Chelsea legend wasn’t happy with the idea that he would
start from the bench and so opted not to turn up for the game which later ended
2-2.
Montreal initially thought his omission was due to a back injury but
later learnt he could actually feature in the game play but just didn’t show up…he
probably felt slighted.


‘I spoke with him on Saturday and he didn’t accept the fact that
he would come off the bench and, in the end, he didn’t want to be in the 18. He
decided not to play.’
There was tightness in his back, yes, but he was capable of
playing. The organisation will have to handle this
