Didier Drogba arrives in China: Shanghai Shenhua fans turn out in force

The Ivory Coast striker, who last month signed a two-and-a-half-year deal to join Shanghai Shenhua, was met by a huge crowd of supporters chanting his name at the airport's arrival hall.

Drogba shook the hands of several fans - with many holding Drogba banners, sporting Shenhua scarves and waving Ivory Coast flags - and wore a smile during the brief appearance, before being whisked away from the airport.

"I am looking forward to a new challenge, to experiencing a new culture, and excited about the new developments in the Chinese Super League," he told reporters upon his arrival.

"Me and my family arrived this morning [Saturday morning] and we are all going to the game tonight. I am looking forward to starting training with the team."

The former Chelsea man will be officially presented to Shenhua supporters at Saturday's clash with rivals Beijing Guoan, however he will not play in the game.
