Yesterday Drogba was devouring people, today he's a little girl

Tee hee...

With Didier Drogba's contract coming to an end in June we can expect to see never ending rumors about his potential landing spot from now until the end of the season. He's been linked to Shanghai and a reunion with Nicolas Anelka for some time now just due to the Chinese club's ability to match his wage demands and take on an aging star. Today that link produced a quote that had me rolling on the ground laughing. According to several sources a representative of the Shanghai club was quoted with the following:

It's like flirting with a girl. Perhaps she will resist you at first, but if you continue to ask her out, it always ends well. Never give up.

While this doesn't hint any further at an imminent departure, comparing Drogs to a girl you are courting is just priceless. This goes right up there with the Yuri Zhirkov ribeye steak comparison from 18 months ago in my book as far as the amount of humor I found in such an innocent quote. With AVB suggesting that the price for strikers is too high at the moment I'd be shocked if Drogba moves on this January, but I'm sure I'll giggle while picturing him as a little girl the next time he absolutely devours an opposing center back.
