Publisher's Summary

The story of one of the most recognisable and successful players in world football.

Didier Drogba is renowned for his heading ability, sharp shooting and sheer strength. He has played for his native Ivory Coast and for clubs in France, China and Turkey, but it is as a Chelsea striker that he is best known. His feats with Chelsea, with whom he still plays, have made him a cult hero among supporters.

Away from football Drogba has been widely applauded for his involvement in trying to broker peace in the Ivorian civil war - he was a UN goodwill ambassador, and Time magazine named him one of the world's 100 most influential people. Go behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge and find out about life on and off the field for this Chelsea hero.

My best read in 2016

I am not a Chelsea so never followed his career closely. But his book has struck a major chord. It is honest and simple but very impactful. You will not regret buying this.

Pure Elegance

Didier Drogba's autobiography is an inspirational love letter to the sport of football. It's impossible to listen this book and not feel some sort of inspiration. The book is also topped off with great narration by Stefan Cornicard.

One Word: Legend

Exemplary human being. Drogba's way of beliving in himself 100%, his rise into leadership and path to become the ultimate big game player for Chelsea FC, along with his humanitarian efforts in Ivory Coast and Africa makes him my favorite role model. I'm a passionate football fan and Chelsea supporter which made the detailed descriptions of a few plays and the way he illustrates his emotions, much more enjoyable. Loved the tenacity he has demonstrated throught his life. Recommended for anyone seeking a story about a fully potent mentor and even more towards football fans.

Everything you'd expect Drogba to be

What moved me most is Drogba's commitment to CSR and involvement in his charity, especially when he says that he hopes to build a school in the future because when people are more educated, they won't have to start war because they can talk matters out and they won't be used by politicians to cause chaos since they can reason on their own.

Must for Chelsea Supporters

If u are a Chelsea supporter like myself it's a must read. It gives a good insight into Drogba's life to date and what a humble man he is! The narrator was also brilliant and made it sound and feel as if Drogba was narrating it.

The story of Didier Drogba is fantastic

The story of Didier Drogba is fantastic as i knew before i read the book since i have been following Chelsea since i was young. Its an underdog story at first who then rises to be the best african footballer ever. What i think would have made it better is the way the chapters are written he dedicates the first 3/4 of the book to his football storys then goes back in time for the last few chapters to write about his family, friends and charity work through the years i think if he would have worked it all in to a chronological story it would have been a bit more whole
