Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba reportedly sued for £1 million by a Canadian shoemaker for allegedly avoiding London’s Selfridges event in 2017.
The 41-year-old was said to have struck an informal agreement to promote Jordan Pascal’s luxury JAD brand during his reign at Montreal Impact three seasons ago.
Pascal, the Canadian Shoe Maker has now sued the former Ivorian striker for £1.25 million in lost earnings, expenses and damages.
“His behaviour trapped me in a maze of broken promises and negligence, It exhausted my finances, destroyed my reputation in the fashion industry, made investors go away and led me to the brink of ruin and bankruptcy,” Pascal said.
The former Chelsea star, who won Champions League title with the club in 2012 will hope the case is booted out when heard at Montreal’s high court.
Drogba announced his retirement from football in November 2018 after spending just one year at Phoenix Rising.
He scored 14 goals in 22 appearances for the club. Read more:
