Chelsea stars Didier Drogba and Michael Essien were in Accra a couple of days back and they had everyone running around to catch a glimpse of them.
I was at the Kotoka International Airport where I watched them arrive.It was a melee.People running up and down trying to catch just a glimpse.I got a photo pose though.They wouldn't answer any direct questions neither.
Instead I got an interview with John Utaka of Rennes FC,France, who was in town to attend the CAF Award courtesy of GLO the award sponsors.
Didier spoke a little to the press but it was mainly to the Ivoirien press.As you know they speak French and I could only understand a little bit.
