“A Sickening Clash”: Chelsea Star Didier Drogba Knocked Unconscious, Stretchered Off After Injury Against Norwich

One of the world’s most famous soccer stars was left lying motionless on the pitch after a being knocked cold by Norwich keeper John Ruddy.

Midway through the second half of the 1-1 tie Didier Drogba, from an offside position, went up to head a pass as Ruddy rose to punch it away, knocking Drogba cold out and crashing to the ground.

Drogba would be unresponsive as he was strapped onto a stretcher and taken off the pitch. We’ll update this story as news on Drogba’s condition becomes available.

Edit, 1:53 EDT: The Associated Press reported Drogba has a mild concussion but will be released tonight from hospital.

    He appeared to be moving when they carried him off. Certainly a concussion at the least, though. Scary!

    Im not much of a Drogba fan but I certainly wish him the best, that was awful. Hopefully hes only been knocked cold and doesnt have a serious concussion.
