Didier Drogba's son joins French club 16 years after his father

Ivory Coast

Didier Drogba’s 17-year-old son Isaac has joined French Ligue 1 club Guingamp.

Isaac Drogba, plays as a striker, just like his father and has previously played for Chelsea’s academy.

His father Didier Drogba played for Guingamp 16 years ago, having joined the club from Le Mans.

I couldn't be more proud of you Isaac Drogba.

Didier Drogba, who scored 24 goals in 50 appearances for Guingamp, posted on Instagram: “Couldn’t be more proud of you Isaac Drogba.”

Didier Drogba spent less than two seasons at Guingamp’s Stade de Roudourou before signing for Marseille, where he spent a year before joining Chelsea in 2004.

He went on to win the Premier League four times, the FA Cup four times and the Champions League.

Whereas Didier Drogba played 104 times for the Ivory Coast, captaining his side in African Cup and World Cup games, he told the media in 2015 that his son, who was born in France, wanted to play for England.
