Didier Drogba says he is determined to be the “king of Africa“ - even if Chelsea are worried about his safety.
Chelsea striker Drogba is hoping to lead Ivory Coast to African Nations Cup glory despite the tournament being overshadowed by Togo pulling out after three members of their party were killed by terrorists.
Drogba said: “I know that Chelsea are following the developments and I understand that because Europe is a long way from here and they are worried.
“But I came to Angola to succeed, show that Ivory Coast can do well in the World Cup and for me personally to be the best and be the king.”
