Drogba – Does Wenger regret signing me? Ask him!

The Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is getting ready to face Arsenal this weekend, and he has an amazing scoring record against the Gunners, but he recalled that Arsene Wenger nearly signed him when he was a young man playing in the lower reaches of the French League.

He was asked if he thought that Wenger is now regretting his decision, and he replied: Drogba, 32, said: “I don’t know if Arsene Wenger regrets it – you will have to ask him.

“But remember he did have Thierry Henry!”

“Arsenal was a team with a lot of French players and players from the French League.

“Sylvain Wiltord, Patrick Vieira, Thierry Henry, Robert Pires… the French used to joke Arsenal were the 21st team in Ligue 1.

“And then I heard Arsene Wenger was interested in me.

“But for some reason it didn’t happen and I didn’t sign for Arsenal, I don’t think it was my destiny.

“I honestly believe if things don’t happen, it is for a reason.”

Well I for one am very glad that Drogba didn’t join Arsenal, he has been absolutely brilliant for Chelsea and hopefully he can carry on his scoring record against the Gunners this weekend.
