Ivorian football legend, Didier Drogba, has aimed a subtle dig at Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp after Senegal won the 2021 AFCON.
Klopp, in an interview before the AFCON described the tournament as a “little tournament” – a statement he later clarified as being sarcastic.
However, it doesn’t appear Drogba bought that explanation by virtue of his recent tweet.
In response to a video showing the wild celebrations in Dakar after Senegal’s first ever AFCON triumph, Drogba tweeted, “A « little tournament » that means a lot for us Africans.”
A « little tournament » that means a lot for us Africans 🙏🏾 https://t.co/IpdhMhusoe

The final was contested between Senegal and Egypt, both led by Liverpool stars, Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah – with Senegal edging it 4-2 on penalties.
