Didier Drogba joins Phoenix Rising FC

Phoenix Rising Football Club announced that legendary striker Didier Drogba has joined its MLS expansion franchise ownership group and will have a vested interest in the ongoing success of the USL side of the club. As part of the deal, Drogba will help develop the team as a player before advancing to an executive role with the Phoenix MLS expansion franchise.

This is exciting for your boy right there.

We’ve written about and been watching Phoenix Rising for a while now here at TOW, mainly because Diplo bought into the team a while back, but the fact that DiDi has jumped on board and is a part of the group looking to come from USL to MLS, is a big deal.

Two ways for me to look at it, when Didier came to Montreal, this was part of the deal and there had been some talks about where the opportunities for team ownership in the future may lie for him AND/OR he was so overcome by the great soccer culture here in the United States during his limited run over the last two years, he saw an opportunity to get involved and wanted in.

Either way, I’m happy and am planning on making a way to go see the god play.

Luckily, he’ll be playing with the team right in my backyard next month!
