Didier Drogba keeps finding impressive new ways to wreck opponents' heads

Drogba reverted to his four-year-old self last night.

FOR THOSE OF you who don’t watch Major League Soccer that often, allow us to reassure you that Didier Drogba hasn’t changed a bit.

He’s still a marvellous goalscorer, although slightly less prolific than he was in his heyday.

And he is still thinking up new and impressive ways to wind up his opponents.

Drogba and the Montreal Impact were 2-1 winners against Columbus Crew last night in the first leg of the Eastern Conference semi-finals.

As Montreal tried to wind down the clock in the final minutes, Drogba latched on to the leg of goalkeeper Steve Clark like a four-year-old who has been told that it’s time to switch off the cartoons and go to bed.

To stir things up a little more, he then bounced back to his feet and challenged Clark as if he was the wronged party.

Drogba was booked but Montreal won, so he’ll probably consider that a job well done.
