Kylian Mbappe had his decade-long request to Didier Drogba granted

Kylian Mbappe had his decade-long request to Didier Drogba granted during the 2019 Ballon d’Or awards ceremony in Paris. 

Drogba who co-hosted Monday’s event with Sandy Heribert disclosed he denied a 10-year-old Mbappe (who was on trial at Chelsea) a picture following Chelsea’s Champions League defeat to Barcelona.

 According to him, he snubbed the Frenchman because he was infuriated by referee Tom Ovrebo’s decisions as the Blues crashed out to a late Andres Iniesta goal at Stamford Bridge.

 “Ten years ago after a match, a child came to me and wanted to take a picture,” he said. 

 “That day I said no because of the result [and the refereeing]. I learned that the child was Kylian Mbappe. I want to pay my debt now.”.
