Chelsea legend Didier Drogba: Ivory Coast FF presidency?

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba admits he could be in line to take the Ivory Coast Football Federation presidency.

Drogba hung up the boots earlier this year.

He told Efe: "I think I'm going to miss playing football for the rest of my life because I want to be in a team, score goals, play important games.

"But it's part of life; the end of a cycle as a player. But in this new cycle I have met very interesting people like Jean Todt, working on new projects for the future, I am very busy."

One of these projects could be trying to become president of the Ivory Coast Football Federation.

He added, "I need to talk to a lot of people to learn what I need so to be able to do it, to have an impact and to get an improvement and put into practice everything learned."
