By Amaechi Agbo
Black Stars striker, Asamoah Gyan has backed former Chelsea and Ivory Coast striker, Didier Drogba’s candidature for President of the Ivory Coast Football Federation, FIF, Bestchoicesports.com.ng can report.
The Ivorian Football Federation (FIF) on Thursday, 27th August 2020, invalidated the candidacy of Drogba, who was hoping to contest the Federation’s Presidency.
However, the Ivory Coast international has seemingly been handed a timeline after FIFA suspended all activities relating to the country’s FA presidential elections which were supposed to be held on September 5, 2020.
In a message on his official twitter handle, Gyan declared his support for Drogba and called for a fair playing ground in the Ivory Coast FA presidential elections.
“Football Legends deserve a place in administration. Didier Drogba has seen it all with the National team & club teams. I am for his transition into management & supports his bid…allow fair playing ground & let the people/association decide. @CAF_Online @FIFAcom,” he said.
Drogba also replied him and promised that he will continue to serve the people irrespective of the outcome of the election
“Thank you my Brother, we will continue to work for our People”
It is unclear whether the elections will go ahead as planned on September 5 with Sory Diabaté and Idriss Diallo as the only two candidates who have been approved.
