Didier Drogba from Tito to Drogba by Gabin Bao: An international soccer icon, Didier Drogba has warmed the hearts of millions all over the world and, now playing for Chelsea, he continues to hit the headlines. The first of a two-part graphic biographydescribes the young ‘Tito’, his childhood, schooldays and first visit to France.
It follows him to his first successes with the teams of Le Mans and Guingamp; his happy time with Olympic Marseilles and his initial reluctance to move to Chelsea. In the meantime he falls in love and becomes a father. He is also badly affected by the crisis that breaks out in his country, Ivory Coast and, at an early age, he shows his hatred of violence and war. The images by Pierre Sauvalle are vivid and the story, told by Gabin Bao, is full of humour and excitement. His key attributes include his physical strength, ability in the air, and his ability to retain possession of the ball.
