Ivory Coast captain Didier Drogba was robbed at his hotel in Abidjan while on holidays in the country last week, Star Magazine, a local weekly, reported on Wednesday.
This comes just two days after a robber ransacked the rooms of Ghana stars Asamoah Gyan and Sulley Muntari during the Black Stars camp in Lesotho on Sunday.
The Galatasaray forward Drogba returned to his room on the 11th floor of Hotel Ivoire to discover that somebody had removed €7,500 from his luggage, according to the report.
Drogba immediately alerted the management of the five-star establishment, who in turn called the police, but their efforts were to no avail. A police officer, who refused to be mentioned, said an investigation had been opened and that they would assist the hotel security to arrest the burglar(s).
This is not the first time an Ivorian professional is losing money or items to robbers while on holidays. Stuggart’s left back Boka Arthur was recently dispossessed of his valuables at the same hotel. Thieves are now targeting Africa’s top football players abroad who are known to be carrying wads of cash on their travel to the continent.
