While the likes of Frank Lampard and John Terry are eying the managerial role, especially Frank Lampard who has already taken a role as manager, Didier Drogba is not looking like the one interested in managerial job.
He also has a foundation back in his home country where he gives back to his community. Congratulations to him on his new endorsement deal…
