Ivory Coast legend Didier Drogba gets zero vote from ex-players in FA presidential elections

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba’s quest to lead Ivory Coast football received a major blow after former players unanimously voted for his rival.

Of the 14 members in the Association, 11 voted for his rival, league president Sory Diabate, while three persons abstained.

The third candidate, the current Vice President, Idriss Diallo also got no votes from the ex-players.

The results of the election, which was done via video conferencing, has reportedly sparked a massive debate in the Ivory Coast.

Drogba had been the massive favourite going into the polls, particularly after experienced administrator Eugene Diomande withdrew from the race and publicly backed the former Ivorian captain.

Drogba will hope to have better luck when members of the Active Footballers Association, the coaches, referees and the physios also cast their votes.
