It seems to have taken him a fair old while, with an aborted move to Chicago Fire in there somewhere, but Didier Drogba is now a Montreal Impact player having signed with the MLS side earlier in the week.

Touching down in Canada for the first time yesterday afternoon, Drogba was greeted by frenzied throngs as hundreds of fans stampeded through Montreal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau airport to get a look at their hero.

The former Chelsea striker captured his first steps on Canadian soil on Twitter. What’s the French for pandemonium?

There were even Ivorian drums being played as Drogba muddled his way through the crowd in the arrivals concourse…

So this is happening. #IMFC

The official MLS website dispatched Olivier Tremblay to document Drogba’s big welcome but the ensuing din was so loud that it rendered all of his tapes useless.

Hence, he was forced to admit up front that his report was a little light on quotes due to the “utter mayhem” that descended on Montreal airport.

Camp Drog says…


“All this fuss for little ol’ me? Step aside bitches, Queen Bitch coming through!”

    Welcome to Montreal, Didier!

    Oh and Chris, top work on the new WAATP look.

    Very cool.

      Thanks Jarren, though I can’t take much credit for it personally.

      It’s the chaps working behind the scenes who deserve all the plaudits for the facelift.
