Shanghai Shenhua fans turn out in force as Didier Drogba arrives in China

The former Chelsea striker landed in Shanghai on Saturday morning to a mass of Chinese fans who chanted his name and celebrated his arrival after signing with the Blue Boys

Didier Drogba has arrived in China greeted by approximately 750 fans at Pudong International Airport on Saturday morning (local time).

The Ivory Coast striker, who last month signed a two-and-a-half-year deal to join Shanghai Shenhua, was met by a huge crowd of supporters chanting his name at the airport's arrival hall.

Drogba shook the hands of several fans - with many holding Drogba banners, sporting Shenhua scarves and waving Ivory Coast flags - and wore a smile during the brief appearance, before being whisked away from the airport.

"I am looking forward to a new challenge, to experiencing a new culture, and excited about the new developments in the Chinese Super League," he told reporters upon his arrival.

"Me and my family arrived this morning [Saturday morning] and we are all going to the game tonight. I am looking forward to starting training with the team."

The former Chelsea man will be officially presented to Shenhua supporters at Saturday's clash with rivals Beijing Guoan, however he will not play in the game.

Drogba's debut is expected to come in Wednesday's Chinese FA Cup fixture away to Changchun Yatai.

nope, thats exactly what he is set to make in China...... if anyone is still in doubt why he left the EPL, that is the reason why.

but hey, Eto´o is getting $30million a year to play in Anzhi Makhachkala. so you should have put your kid in football practice a LONG Time ago.
