DUBAI: Former Ivory Coast forward and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba was the victim of an amusing trap set by a youngster who turned out to be an Arsenal fan.
During a sporting event in Kuwait, the 44-year-old African football icon was welcomed by a Kuwaiti boy posing in a Chelsea shirt.
Immediately after Drogba inked his autograph on the jersey, the boy laughed and removed the shirt to reveal a Gunners jersey underneath.
In a 39-second video that went viral on Friday, Drogba was shown slapping his forehead and screaming in laughter: “How could you do that to me?”
The Ivorian legend then held up his pen and signed the Arsenal shirt.
The same incident was also shown in 17-second video that was viewed over 2.7 million times on Twitter.
UK-based businessman and Chelsea fan Frank Khalid tweeted the video, which was retweeted by Drogba, who commented: “The funniest kid ever.”
The retired footballer was recently involved in the FIFA Qatar World Cup draw.
