Ivorian FA Election: Drogba, Two Others fate to be decided 5th September


Drogba, Two Others To Fight For Ivorian FA Presidency In September

Former Ivory Coast captain, Didier Drogba will face stiff competition from incumbent president Ivory Coast Football Association, Sory Diabate and FIF vice-president Idriss Diallo in September 5th election, reports.

Drogba represented his country 105 times and announced his intention to run for the post back in September, 2019.

However, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the FA election date was postponed and 5th September, 2020 has been announced.

Despite support from Toure, not all players have backed Drogba’s bid. The union of former Ivorian football players have backed Diabate over Drogba.

Speaking on his Instagram page in May, 2020, Toure told his followers, “Didier was my big brother, my captain. People talked a lot about us but we were always calm, wise. We know each other.

“Too many people tried to criticise him, the press, fans.”

Current players from Ivory Coast will be given an opportunity to vote and Toure, the four-time African footballer of the year who led his country to victory in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations said: “I know he is looking for support and I hope he will get it from some of the voters, presidents of clubs or AFI (Ivorian Association of Football Players).
