Former Chelsea striker and old friend of Didier Drogba signs for Sligo Rovers

We wonder if Drogba advised him on his move to the Bit O'Red.

Nielsen is a former Chelsea player and left them in 2009 after advice from none other than Didier Drogba.

The players were in a jacuzzi at the Chelsea training centre where Drogba told the young Danish striker that he should explore other avenues, according to the Daily Mail.

He ended up signing for AZ Alkmaar in Holland, but since then he has been a bit of a journey man playing in Sweden and lower league Danish football.

We wonder who he'll be chatting to in the jacuzzi in Sligo?
