Drogba Backs African Stars To Break 22-Year ‘Best Player’ Jinx (Video)

Ivorian legend Didier Drogba has thrown his weight behind African players and that they are capable of ending the 22-year wait for the world’s Best Player Award.

The closest an African has come to winning the award since then was when Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o made the final 3 shortlist in 2005.

When asked about the prospects of African players repeating Weah’s feat. The former Chelsea striker said: “We have African talents and we want to see them at the top. But they have to deserve it.”
