The story of one of the most recognisable and successful players in world football.
Didier Drogba is renowned for his heading ability, sharp shooting and sheer strength. He has played for his native Ivory Coast and for clubs in France, China and Turkey, but it is as a Chelsea striker that he is best known. His feats with Chelsea, with whom he still plays, have made him a cult hero among supporters.
Away from football Drogba has been widely applauded for his involvement in trying to broker peace in the Ivorian civil war - he was a UN goodwill ambassador, and Time magazine named him one of the world's 100 most influential people.

If u are a Chelsea supporter like myself it's a must read. It gives a good insight into Drogba's life to date and what a humble man he is! The narrator was also brilliant and made it sound and feel as if Drogba was narrating it.
The story of Didier Drogba is fantastic as i knew before i read the book since i have been following Chelsea since i was young. Its an underdog story at first who then rises to be the best african footballer ever. What i think would have made it better is the way the chapters are written he dedicates the first 3/4 of the book to his football storys then goes back in time for the last few chapters to write about his family, friends and charity work through the years i think if he would have worked it all in to a chronological story it would have been a bit more whole

"My best read in 2016"
I am not a Chelsea so never followed his career closely. But his book has struck a major chord. It is honest and simple but very impactful. You will not regret buying this.
"One Word: Legend"
Exemplary human being. Drogba's way of beliving in himself 100%, his rise into leadership and path to become the ultimate big game player for Chelsea FC, along with his humanitarian efforts in Ivory Coast and Africa makes him my favorite role model. I'm a passionate football fan and Chelsea supporter which made the detailed descriptions of a few plays and the way he illustrates his emotions, much more enjoyable. Loved the tenacity he has demonstrated throught his life. Recommended for anyone seeking a story about a fully potent mentor and even more towards football fans.
BLUE IS THE COLOR, FOOTBALL IS THE GAME 🎵 CHELSEA!
From rags to riches and yet giving back. I wish the narrator was Franco African
