The striker hospital, which is based in the city of Abidjan was opened in 2016 and named after former Ivory Coast footballer Laurent Pokou, who passed away in the same year the hospital opened.

The head of Abidjan’s regional council,Vincent Toh Bi Irie, has praised Drogba for his ‘patriotic gesture,’ the hospital will help them fight the disease, he said.

‘We thank Drogba for this gift considered as an act of patriotism,’ he added said.

The striker scored 164 goals in 381 appearances over two spells with Chelsea, helping them win the Premier League four times and the Champions League in 2012, as well as four FA Cup triumphs and three League Cup victories.
