The European football association announced on Tuesday that the winner of the 2020 UEFA President’s Award is former Chelsea forward Didier Drogba.

“Didier is a hero to millions of football fans for his achievements throughout his glittering playing career,” UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin said in a statement.

“He is a leader – a pioneer. I will remember him as a player for his skill, strength, and intelligence, but above all for his insatiable appetite to succeed – a trait which is just as present in his desire to help others off the field of play.”

The award honours exceptional accomplishments, professional competence, and personal characteristics that are exemplary claimed UEFA.

On Thursday, Drogba will be awarded the honour during the UEFA Champions League draw in Geneva.

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
