Didier Drogba has been named France Football’s new ambassador for the Ballon d’Or.
The Ivory coast international was a star at Chelsea on the pitch, but is also well known for his work off the pitch, in his own home country and all round the world.
Given what a charming man he is it’s no surprise to see him chosen as an ambassador for such a prestigious award. He will be the perfect man to lead the legendary individual award into a new era.
Drogba never won the award himself, but he must have come close in those first years under Jose Mourinho, where his teammate Frank Lampard ended up finishing second.
