Drogba makes his peace with CAF

19 Feb 2010 - 10:20:36

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has revealed that he has made his peace with the African Football Confederation (CAF).

The Ivory Coast international has been shortlisted for the African Footballer of the Year award, which he won in 2006, with Michael Essien and Samuel Eto'o also being nominated.

More recently, Drogba withdrew from the running for the award after losing out to Frederic Kanoute in 2007 when he failed to attend the award ceremony in Mail because he was taking part in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Drogba said: "That was the past. We all sat down and spoke about it - Mr Hayatou (the CAF president) and the people from the Ivory Coast Federation - so I think everything is good now.

"It is a good trophy and a big honour for a player to win it, especially this year, which is so special for the African continent. To win it would be very nice."
