Montreal Impact resolve issue with Chelsea hero Drogba

MLS club Montreal Impact have worked out their differences with Didier Drogba.

The Chelsea great stunned the Canadian club when he refused to be a part of their match-day squad for the vital clash with Toronto FC on the weekend after being left out of Mauro Biello's starting line-up.

A meeting has since taken place and club president Joey Saputo insists everything is now fine with the Ivory Coast legend.

"We met with Didier. The situation has been resolved to the club's satisfaction," Saputo said.

"Didier has accepted to assume the role that the head coach sees fit while contributing to success of this club moving forward.

"When he came to Montreal, Didier said he came here to win, and he still has the same objective.

"Our main priority now is to focus on the last game of the season and the upcoming playoffs."

The Impact have secured a play-off spot as they sit fifth in the Eastern Conference, six points clear of seventh-placed New England Revolution, with one regular season match remaining.
