More than 7 days have passed since the death of Diego Maradona and that is why many famous players remembered him again. One of those who felt the death of Maradona the most was Didier Drogba, who considered him his greatest idol. Drogba confessed that a phrase that Diego Maradona told him and a moment lived with him were more important than having won the golden ball.
Many players said that meeting Diego Maradona had been a before and after in their life but for Drgoba it was unique. That moment was so special that it surpasses having won the golden ball against the best players in the world. The meeting between Drogba and Diego Maradona took place during the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
In the letter that Drogba wrote to France Football, he relates that the day he met Diego Maradona he will never be able to forget the words he said to him. Diego Maradona when seeing Drogba said: "Drogba, a bomb." That phrase that Maradona said about Drogba will never be forgotten for the Ivory Coast player. Meeting Diego Maradona was touching the sky with his hands for Drogba.
Didier Drogba ended the letter just like Pele as he wrote an "I love you". It is incredible to see the impact that Diego Maradona's death had on the best players in history. Without any doubt, November 25 will mark a before and after in the lives of all those who have ever enjoyed Diego Maradona, if not it is enough to reread Didier Drogba's letter.
