Arsene Wenger once again had to face the wrath of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba who scored a hat-trick in Olympic Marseille Legends vs Team UNICEF XI
Didier Drogba was born to torment Arsene Wenger.
Scoring 15 times in 16 matches against Wenger’s Arsenal with Chelsea, Drogba was a menace for the Frenchman. And when the Ivory Coast striker stepped on the same pitch as Wenger, Drogba’s innate thirst to score against him was reignited.
Part of the Olympic Marseille Legends team when they took on Team UNICEF in an exhibition match, Drogba rolled back the years to show why he’s regarded as one of the finest strikers to have stepped onto the pitch. The Chelsea legend scored a hat-trick on the night, one which sealed a 7-4 win for his side.
Didier Drogba Returns To Haunt Arsene Wenger With Hat-Trick In OM Legends vs Team UNICEF XI
As Wenger’s side took a 2-1 lead on the day, Drogba decided it was time for him to pull his socks up and grab the match by the scruff of its neck. He asked Team UNICEF XI to take a walk as he set the contest alight with a well worked hat-trick, one which was an epitome of Drogba’s expansive skill set.
The defender paid dearly for messing with my LEGEND.😂

Not only did Drogba show what a goal machine he was in his heydays but he also pulled out his iconic sliding celebration to the delight of the supporters in the stands. The celebration is bound to have brought back gruesome memories for Wenger who once again had to endure the horror of Drogba’s feet.
Wenger meanwhile continues to live in a world of his own with him once again talking about how the world is slowly warming up to the idea of a two year world cup. The old Arsenal manager has been adamant on peddling a world cup every two years with complete disregard to player fatigue and health.
