Didier Drogba Response to Erling Haaland Goal Celebration

In the UEFA Champions League match between Chelsea, Manchester City, and Young Boys, the spotlight was on Chelsea legend Didier Drogba. During the Ballon d’Or ceremony, Drogba posed a playful challenge to Erling Haaland, asking him to choose between emulating Gary Lineker’s or Drogba’s goal celebration for his next score.

Drogba later shared Haaland’s celebration from his Young Boys match on Instagram, praising the Norwegian for keeping his word after he scored the opening goal on Tuesday, November 7, 2023, from the penalty spot.

Erling Haaland’s goal in that game brought his total tally in the competition to 39, placing him among the top 20 all-time scorers, alongside Fernando Morientes. If he keeps up his performance, Haaland could potentially surpass the likes of Kylian Mbappe (42), Del Piero (43), Neymar (43), and Drogba (44) during the 2023/24 season.
