Kylian Mbappe had his decade-long request to Didier Drogba granted during the 2019 Ballon d’Or awards ceremony in Paris.
According to him, he snubbed the Frenchman because he was infuriated by referee Tom Ovrebo’s decisions as the Blues crashed out to a late Andres Iniesta goal at Stamford Bridge.
“Ten years ago after a match, a child came to me and wanted to take a picture,” he said.
“That day I said no because of the result [and the refereeing]. I learned that the child was Kylian Mbappe. I want to pay my debt now.”
