Drogba splurges on Blues
Didier Drogba has offered golden rings to each of his former Chelsea team-mates to commemorate their last season’s Champions League final victory during a dinner on Wednesday at the Wyndham Grand Chelsea Harbour in London.
The total value of the gifts is £800,000 (R 11,150,000), according to The Independent.
The 34-year-old Ivorian captain, who now plies his trade at Shanghai Shenhua in China, hosted the players as well as staff with whom he won the trophy in Munich last May and presented them with the rings as a surprise.
“I wanted to give something to the team so we can all look back and remember that achievement,” Drogba said.
Petr Cech, Juan Mata and John Terry were among those who attended the event while Fernando Torres and recently sacked coach Roberto Di Matteo did not show up.
Drogba will be training at the Stamford Bridge ahead of January’s Africa Cup of Nations following the Chinese Premier League offseason.
