Wenger says he missed an opportunity to sign Drogba.

The Arsenal Manager said that he missed an opportunity to sign Drogba in the early days of his career.

During an interview, the Arsenal boss said: “I would have loved to have managed Didier Drogba for two reasons.

“I missed him when he played in France at Le Mans – not even in the top league. I knew he was good player there and I missed him.

“And secondly because he hurt us so much in big games that all this pain would not have happened.”

Drogba joined Chelsea in 2004 and has scored a total of 15 goals in 15 games against Arsenal.

He returned to Chelsea in July, after spending 6 months with Shanghai Shenhua in China and one and a half seasons with Turkish giants Galatasaray.
