The agent of Chelsea striker Didier Drogba admits he found the effort by Marseille fans to re-sign him as "pitiful".

Thierno Seydi explained to France Football: "OM would have difficulty paying the player's transfer and salary.

"The 'Drogbathon' really touched him.

"He found the initiative nice but pitiful, because that shows a bit that OM and French clubs have real difficulties in attracting great players."
