​Drogba turns down Corinthians offer which included bullet proof car

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has refused an offer to join Corinthians of Brazil that would have included a bullet-proof car.

The 38-year-old is out of contract after a spell at Montreal Impact and was offered $120,000 (110,000 euros) a week, a 24-hours-per-day translator, six return tickets to Europe - plus the all-important bullet-proof car, but he took to Twitter to explain why he had turned down the offer.
