Known for his exemplary professionalism, Didier Drogba 38, vexed to have been benched by the coach, boycotted the Sunday match between the Impact Montreal in Toronto (2-2). Behavior unappreciated by the technician who expressed it to the press.
“Yesterday afternoon (Saturday), I had a meeting with him and he did not accept the fact that he did not start the match, said the technician. Yes, he had a little something back, but it was not enough, he could play. I wanted to get this straight. I have to protect my team, “said Mauro Biello who and added:” It’s a shame that it happened this way before a match of such importance, but as I said before, the institution comes first. (…) I need him and that’s what I told him. I need him, but I made a choice based on last matches and the pace we had. By starting on the bench, he brings a presence, he brings something that can help this team. “
A whim judged as too much by Canadian media towards the former Chelsea striker, which could affect his football future.
