Didier Drogba refused to play for Montreal Impact after learning he will be left out of the team’s starting XI against Toronto. The Chelsea legend wasn’t happy with the idea that he would start from the bench and so opted not to turn up for the game which later ended 2-2.
Montreal initially thought his omission was due to a back injury but later learnt he could actually feature in the game play but just didn’t show up…he probably felt slighted.
'I spoke with him on Saturday and he didn't accept the fact that he would come off the bench and, in the end, he didn't want to be in the 18. He decided not to play.' There was tightness in his back, yes, but he was capable of playing. The organisation will have to handle this .” coach Mauro Biello said
