Galatasaray FC striker and Ivorian footballer, Didier Drogba, has reportedly bought a 5 per cent stake in his country’s largest mining company.

The former Chelsea forward according to African Review made an investment of $74 Million to acquire part of the state’s shares in the company

Drogba had expressed interest in purchasing the stakes at the state owned mine in March 2013, but encountered difficulties sealing the deal. It took the intervention of the country’s president Alassane Ouattara before the deal was concluded last Friday.

Congratulations to Didier Drogba!
