Chelsea fans show their love for Drogba

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba celebrated his 40th birthday on Sunday.

The forward, who won four Premier League titles and a Champions League during his time at Stamford Bridge – which spanned two spells -, is still in football as player-owner of Phoenix Rising in Arizona, which is a testament to his competitive spirit.
