Didier Drogba may have been hailed across the world for his scoring exploits in two spells at Chelsea across nine exceptional seasons — but he has also been known for his long, flowing locks — until now.
Didier Drogba has left fans stunned with his dramatic new look.
The Ivorian, 39, is still playing with USL side Phoenix Rising but plans to retire at the end of the season to focus on other projects
Chelsea legend Drogba has enjoyed an incredible career and helped the Blues win four Premier League titles
He also famously scored the winning penalty in their Champions League final victory in 2012.
Drogba’s playing days will soon be over but before he hangs up his boots, he has decided it is time for a change.
The striker uploaded an image to social media on Friday night after completely shaving off his slick locks.
And he had a good reason to pick the date.
“15/12/2000 was the Beginning, 15/12/2017 Born is the new Me,” he tweeted.
But some fans couldn’t quite believe what they were seeing – with many disappointed his distinguished look had gone.
