In Amarante, in the dispute for Serie B of the Portuguese Championship, there is a Drogba who, like the Ivorian star who distinguished himself at Chelsea’s service, makes the goal his specialty.
Drogba Camará is a star in a great start to the season, with four goals in six games, after having shown the number of respect last season: 6 goals in 19 matches. A success that the 1.95-metre giant from Guinea attributes «to the day-to-day work… with hard work and a clear head, success normally appears».
The moment is for the player to return to competition, who this weekend returned from a three-game suspension. A situation that somehow dampened the momentum with which it started. “Yes, in a way it got stuck, but that’s a thing of the past. Now I’m very focused on the present and the future, this kind of thing makes us stronger”, stressed the striker, whose ‘fame’ of Drogba dates back to the beginning of his sporting journey, still in his native Guinea-Bissau … And he was the one who got his name: «The name Drogba came up in the games I played with my friends in the neighbourhood,» recalled A BOLA cheerfully.
“He was my favorite player, I really like Didier Drogba for what he did for Côte d’Ivoire and Chelsea. Playing in the neighbourhood, I always liked to score goals and because of the height I have I scored a lot of goals with my head. From there I started saying ‘I’m Drogba’ – I was the one who gave me that name because when I scored goals it was Drogba, Drogba… and my friends continued to call me that, after my favorite player”, recalled the now ‘Drogba de Amarante ‘, who hopes to turn professional and follow in the footsteps of his idol.
