Chelsea football striker Didier Drogba has spoken out for the very first time about his horrific collision with Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy last month which left the star player knocked out cold for almost eight minutes.
The premier league player says with utter conviction and relief about his KO:
“The most important thing is that I’m alive!”
There was a real sense of fear when the team of medics rushed on to the pitch to apply oxygen to a lifeless Drogba as his worried team mates could do nothing more than look on. The striker was then carried off on a stretcher to hospital.
Like a true star, the ace footballer is oping to make a comeback against rival premier team Swansea today despite suffering concussion and a perforated ear drum in his KO clash of several weeks ago that’s left him feeling extremely fortunate to still be around.
“When I see those images again it’s scary. I was lucky, definitely.
“Playing football is important for me but being alive and being with my kids and having my family happy that I’m still here is the most important thing”, said 33-year-old Didier Drogba.
