Mbappe finally Gets His Request from Drogba

13

It is always surreal moment when the legends share long awaited moments with their biggest fans. this was the case with Drogba and Kylian Mbappe. Kylian Mbappe had his decade-long request to Didier Drogba granted during the 2019 Ballon d’Or awards ceremony in Paris. Drogba who co-hosted Monday’s event with Sandy Heribert disclosed that he denied a 10-year-old Mbappe (who was on trial at Chelsea) a picture following Chelsea’s Champions League defeat to Barcelona.

According to him, he snubbed the Frenchman because he was infuriated by referee Tom Ovrebo’s decisions as the Blues crashed out to a late Andres Iniesta goal at Stamford Bridge.

“Ten years ago after a match, a child came to me and wanted to take a picture,” he said.

“That day I said no because of the result [and the refereeing]. I learned that the child was Kylian Mbappe. I want to pay my debt now.”

Shortly after this, the Ivorian asked the audience to stand and get in the back of a selfie with the PSG star.
