Didier Drogba Biography
Didier Drogba was born in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, and at the age of five was sent to France by his parents to live with his uncle, Michel Goba, a professional footballer.
However, Didier Drogba soon became homesick and returned to Abidjan after three years. His mother nicknamed him “Tito”, after president Josip Broz Tito of Yugoslavia, whom she admired greatly.
Didier Drogba played football every day in a car park in the city but his return to the Ivory Coast was short lived. Both of his parents lost their jobs and he again returned to live with his uncle.
In 1991, his parents also travelled to France; first to Vannes and then, in 1993, setting in Antony in the Paris suburbs, at which point the 15-year-old Didier Drogba returned to live with them and his siblings. It was here that he began playing team football more frequently, joining a local youth side.
Didier Drogba then joined the semi-professional club Levallois, gaining a reputation as a prolific scorer in the youth team and impressing the coach with his professional attitude.
Didier Drogba performances earned him a place in the senior squad but despite scoring in his debut, the 18-year-old Ivorian failed to make an impression on Jacques Loncar, the first team coach.
When Didier Drogba finished school he moved to the city Le Mans to study accountancy at university and he had to change clubs, becoming an apprentice at Ligue 2 club Le Mans. However, his first two years there were marred by injuries and he was physically struggling to cope with the training and match schedule.
Former Le Mans coach Marc Westerloppe later remarked that “it took Didier four years to be capable of training every day and playing every week”. Furthermore, Didier Drogba’s complicated family life meant that he had never attended a football academy and only began daily football training as a fully grown adult.
By age 21, Didier Drogba realised that he had to establish himself as a player soon or else he would have little chance of becoming a professional footballer. Didier Drogba made his first team debut for Le Mans soon thereafter and signed his first professional contract in 1999.
The same year, he and his Malian wife Alla had their first child, Isaac. Didier Drogba grew into his new responsibilities, later stating: “Isaac’s birth was a turning point in my life, it straightened me out”.
Didier Drogba first season, in which he scored seven goals in thirty games, boded well for the future, but during the following season he did not live up to expectations.
Didier Drogba lost his place to Daniel Cousin due to injury, then upon his return, he failed to score throughout the remainder of the season. However, he returned to form the following season, scoring five goals in 21 appearances.
In February 2006, Didier Drogba captained the Ivory Coast to their second Africa Cup of Nations final, scoring the only goal in their semi-final match with Nigeria and putting away the deciding spot-kick in their record-tying 12–11 penalty shootout quarter-final win over Cameroon. However, they lost in the final to Egypt 4–2 on penalty kicks after a 0–0 draw, with Didier Drogba’s shot being stopped by Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary.
Didier Drogba is married to Diakité Lalla, a Malian woman whom he met in Paris, and the couple have three children together. Didier Drogba eldest son, Isaac, was born in France in 1999, but grew up in England and has played in the Chelsea academy system. Isaac Drogba signed for French club Guingamp in February 2018.
Didier Drogba has two younger brothers who are also footballers: Joël and Freddy Drogba. Freddy, (born 1992), is currently in the youth system of French Ligue 1 side Dijon. Didier Drogba is a devout Roman Catholic.
Didier Drogba uncle, Michel Goba, is also a professional footballer and Ivorian international, and his cousin Kévin Goba (Michel’s son) is a professional footballer who played in the lower leagues of France.
