FOREWORD BY JOSE MOURINHO This is the frank and moving autobiography of one of the world's best strikers and most intriguing personalities. Drogba tells of his heartbreaking separation from his homeland at the age of five, his unsettled formative years moving around France before his first breaks at Mans and Guincamp revealed a precocious talent which came through in a stunning season for Marseillles and finally a GBP24m move to Chelsea. Mourinho said of Drogba "With you I could win every war", and the striker was pivotal in Chelsea's first title in 50 years. Passionate, outspoken, searingly honest and always entertaining, Drogba is also the ultimate team player, and a hero to fans. But there is much more to Drogba than footballing brilliance. He is a phenomenon in the UK, France and in his home country of the Ivory Coast where his outstanding journey from a humble background to superstar sets him apart from other footballers; he has inspired dance crazes, place names and was even a unifying influence in the turbulent politics of his war torn country. From this he has been appointed 1 of 3 UN ambassadors besides Zidane and Ronaldo. Drogba will talk openly about his life and career: the successes and the struggles; the glories and controversies. Here is a premiership footballer with a real story to tell. Didier Drogba wears the number 11 shirt for Chelsea and Ivory Coast and is one of the most talented strikers in world football.
