Play is detected by the game! Before the AFCON match between Ivory Coast and Nigeria, Chelsea target Victor Osimhen meets ‘idol’ Didier Drogba, whom they embrace warmly.
Nigeria will face Ivory Coast in Thursday’s Africa Cup of Nations match, and Victor Osimhen embraced his “idol,” Didier Drogba, before the game.
In the players’ tunnel before the teams’ arrival on the field, the hitman from Nigeria and Napoli met with the former Ivorian great. After Drogba wrapped his arm around Osimhen, the two embraced, shook hands, and had a pleasant conversation before they parted ways.
When Osimhen heard that the former Chelsea great would be playing at the Africa Cup of Nations in his hero’s country, he was sure to be overjoyed. Life is strange; I never missed a Didier Drogba match when I was younger,” he recently commented. Every motion he made became second nature to me, and when I beаt my buddies, I would celebrate just like him. It is a privilege for me to be able to participate in AFCON in the home country of my hero. Something about this makes me feel like I’m back in Olusosun, the little boy who had big goals, like becoming champion of Africa.Possibly taking advantage of the situation, Drogba persuaded Osimhen to sign with Chelsea. The striker has reportedly been connected to the Blues, and he may try to emulate his idol by joining his idol at Stamford Bridge. While playing for West Ham United, Drogba won the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League four times.
Osimhen, 25, is expected to remain at Napoli until 2026 after signing a new contract. This makes a transfer to Chelsea this month quite improbable. Meanwhile, he’ll be laser-focused on helping his nation win their first continental trophy since 2013 and fourth overall in the 2023 AFCON.
