CHELSEA legend Didier Drogba has offered his hospital as a coronavirus treatment center with Cote d’Ivoire fearing a rise in cases.

Drogba named the hospital in honor of an Ivorian football legend, Laurent Pokou.

The hospital is based in Abidjan, the commercial capital, and opened in 2016. Four persons have died in the COVID-19 outbreak in Cote d’ivoire out of 533 cases.

The head of the city’s regional council, Vincent Toh Bi thanked Drogba for the gesture describing it as an act of patriotism.

The Centre, located in the Attecoube district, is not yet in a working state but can be used in a period of crisis. The Director of Drogba Foundation, Mariam Breka, said it is up to the state to validate it and make it functional.

Drogba, a former Chelsea forward, scored 65 goals in 105 appearances for his country. He also won the Champions League with the English club during his playing career.
