Côte d’Ivoire Players’ Association: Drogba Resigns With Tough Letter




Former Chelsea striker, Didier Drogba has tendered his resignation letter as the Vice President of the  Côte d’Ivoire Players’ Association.

The Blues legend who seems not pleased with the runnings of the association accused it of not defending the interests of players.

Drogba in his letter also accused AFI of failing to properly consult players on important decisions and respecting the players they represent.

The letter reads, “To all Ivorian football players … I hereby announce that a few weeks ago, I decided to resign from my position as vice-president of the AFI and at the same time from its Steering Committee.”


“We are all aware of the financial difficulties you are facing in the face of the inaction of the majority of the leaders of the AFI, which is supposed to represent you and defend your rights and interests.”

“The AFI is at a standstill. It no longer meets your needs or expectations. The bad decisions that have followed one another have led to the deterioration of the very fundamentals of the organisation.”

“I join in your incomprehension in the face of this flagrant lack of coherence.”


“The AFI belongs to you (the players). Be firmly convinced, it will be returned to you!”
