Amid all the money involved in football, the annual Soccer Aid game does wonders for bringing the public together to donate money to great causes whilst seeing legends and celebrities take to the field.
This year was no different with the game being held at Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge and seeing two Blues legends responsible for some of the club’s greatest memories in history take to the field.
Despite being teammates in west London during their career, Sunday’s game saw them feature against each other as Didier Drogba represented the rest of the world side and John Terry the England side.
Indeed, one incident during the clash saw Drogba marking Terry at a set-piece and upon contact with his former captain, hilariously make the VAR gesture.
The moment saw Chelsea fans take to Twitter with some claiming that the Ivorian forward knew first-hand how dangerous Terry could be if left unmarked.
Others simply called the duo ‘legends’, whilst a few pointed out that although Drogba and Terry had found themselves back at Stamford Bridge, the place was missing a certain Frank Lampard – the former Blues midfielder who has been heavily linked in recent days and weeks with replacing Maurizio Sarri as the new Chelsea manager.
Check out some of the reaction of Chelsea fans to the appearances of two of their icons at Soccer Aid below:
