Revealed Reasons Why Ex-Footballers Snupped Didier Drogba and votted for Sory Diabaté.

Published

on

It was shocking to hear that the Ivory Coast former footballers snubbed famous colleague Didier Drogba and voted for Vice president of the Ivorian FA Diabate in the FA presidential election to be held later this year.

Out of 14 ex- players, all voted for Diabaté who had served as assistant to to Sidy Diallo for many years. As a football administrator,  he humiliated the legend by winning the minds of the majority ex-footballers.

Sory Diabaté and Didier Zokora 

Yes everyone thought the exfootballers will vote for Drogba but that was not the case-it is natural and more of common sense as anyone in their shoes will do the same.

Why the Ex-Footballers Voted against Drogba?

Yes Didier Zokora played with Drogba for close to 12 years with the “Elephants” of Ivory Coast but this does not mean Zokora must vote for Drogba.

In September 2019, Didier Zokora was appointed Technical Directoriate of the Ivory Coast football federation and the brain child behind this appointment was Sory Diabaté who was the Vice president of the FA as well as the Ivory Coast league boss.

Zokora was not the only one to benefit from such gesture but nine others had similar positions like Abdoulaye Traore, Youssouf Fofana, Ibrahim Bakayoko, and others.

With such appointments,  most of these former footballers became paid staffs and not beggars to anybody.

Again, Sory Diabaté was key in helping most former footballers to acquire coaching licenses for free without paying a penny.

With such gesture,  being in the shoes of such persons, you will not think twice but to vote for Sory Diabaté as it is often said “you don’t bite the finger that feeds you“.

Where Drogba Blundered as Politician.

Even though the ex-footballers voted against Drogba,  the former Chelsea man also blundered as a politician.

The media in Ivory Coast does not like Drogba. This is because Drogba shows little interest in seeing domestic football in the country grow. In fact he is yet to watch a single domestic match in Ivory Coast.

Also, the fact that Drogba launched his desire to run for FA presidency in a French television station was a blunder because the information did not go down well to the local population in Ivory Coast.

It was also reported that Drogba was in the afcon in Egypt but failed to visit the Ivorian team train and to add more salt to injury, he did not inform the exfootballers of his intention to run for FA presidency.

With such fact, one can understand clearly why the ex-footballers voted for Sory Diabaté and not Drogba.

The race for who to succeed Sidy Augustine Diallo as president of the Ivorian FA will be held later this year.
