It was reported that the Former Chelsea striker lost in the election.
Zokora who played alongside Drogba in the national team explained that Drogba does not show enough respect for the association and that is one of the reasons he was voted against.
“ What we (former footballers) blame Didier Drogba for is that as honorary president of the Union of Alumni of Côte d’Ivoire, he has never been present at a single meeting.
“Didier Drogba did not even inform us of his candidacy for the presidency of the FIF.
“It’s a big lack of respect, ”said Zokora
Zokora also criticized the project of candidate Drogba: ” His program is not convincing because it does not take advantage of Ivorian football
Mr. Sory (Diabaté) offered us a very interesting project that’s why we are with him. In addition, he is not even surrounded by people who master Ivorian football.
Mr. Sory masters the subject better than Didier Drogba”, he said.
