Didier Drogba gets zero votes in Ivory Coast FA elections


Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba’s bid to become the next head of the Ivorian Football Federation faced a halt after former players unanimously voted for his rival.

Drogba in the process secured zero votes from members of the Association of Former Ivorian Footballers.

Of the 14 members in the Association, 11 voted for his rival, league president Sory Diabate, while three persons abstained.

The third candidate, the current Vice President, Idriss Diallo also got no votes from the ex-players.

The results of the election, which was done via video conferencing, has reportedly sparked a massive debate in the Ivory Coast.

Drogba had been the massive favourite going into the polls, particularly after experienced administrator Eugene Diomande withdrew from the race and publicly backed the former Ivorian captain.

Drogba will hope to have better luck when members of the Active Footballers Association, the coaches, referees, and the physios also cast their votes.

Sory will now replace Augustin Sidy Diallo the current Ivorian Football Federation President.
