Famous for
Didier Yves Drogba Tébily was born March 11, 1978, in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, although he spent much of his youth in France living with his uncle, Michel Goba, a former professional soccer player. “Tito,” as Didier Drogba is also known, began his own career in 1998 signing on to play with Second Division Le Mans. Unfortunately, his first three years with the club were plagued by bad luck, as he broke two metatarsals, a fibula and an ankle. Nonetheless, his promise was enough to earn him a call up with French First Division club Guingamp, and he managed to impress, scoring three goals in 11 appearances in 2002. Tito built upon that success the following year, going on to score 17 goals in just 34 appearances. He also made his first international appearance for his native Côte d'Ivoire in September and scored his first international goal the following February against Cameroon.
