A week ago, Brazilian football legend, Edson Arantes Do Nascimento, popularly called Pele stated that Santos striker, Neymar is technically better than Argentina’s Lionel Messi only that the former has a lot to improve if he wants to be considered world best player. Reacting to that statement, Diego Maradonna, UAE Al Wasl coach who hasn’t been on good terms with Pele declared that the latter must have taken the wrong drugs when he made the statement.

33 year-old Chelsea striker, Didier Drogba has rejected a one-year contract extension in his Chelsea football club. The Ivorian who joined the club in 2004 and whose contract expires next summer is setting his eyes in United State, Russia or Asia-based clubs. According to his agent, Thierno Seydi "Didier has had the offer of a one-year extension from Chelsea. That does not suit us. We know what we want, where we want to go and what offers we have. AC Milan came in for Didier on loan with an option to buy but I said 'No' straight away. Their offer did not interest us. At Didier's age, he has nothing left to prove as a player. He will go where he is offered the most money. It could be the United States, Russia, Qatar or somewhere else in Asia.
