Didier Drogba reveals that he has been playing in pain for the last six years.
"The problem was a hernia. I first had it six years ago and, for the last six years, I have been struggling with it. I couldn't really work: it was difficult sometimes for me to play some games."
Never would have suspected that - the way he's gone about massacring the opposition. Arsenal especially suffered in his hands.
Now, he's had a groin surgery which he says makes him "more free in his movements". Mikel Silvestre, a free agent will be very relieved to know he is no longer needed at Arsenal to be humiliated by Drogba version 2.0. By now Lukasz Fabianski must be in a state of panic.
