Didier Drogba robbed in Cote D’Ivoire


The former Chelsea talisman reportedly lost 7,500 euros at his hotel in Abidjan during his brief holiday in the country.

Cote D’Ivoire international Didier Drogba was robbed in a hotel while vacationing in Abidjan last week, according to local reports.

The 35-year-old striker, who joined Turkish club Galatasaray last January, returned from town to his hotel room on June 12 to find his luggage unpacked and strewed, with 7,500 euros missing. The Elephants’ captain reported immediately to the management of Hotel Ivoire, a five-star establishment and the country’s biggest hotel, where several players from the national team spend their holidays.

Nobody has been arrested for burglary and the funds have not been recovered, according to the police in the Cocody district where the hotel is situated. An investigation has since been opened.

Cote D’Ivoire booked its place to the third and final round of the 2014 World Cup qualifiers last weekend without Drogba, who is yet to return to the outfit.

Coach Sabri Lamouchi said this week that the Elephants’ all-time top scorer with 60 goals could make his comeback during the next set of international friendlies.
