Didier Drogba had a heated confrontation with a New York Red Bulls fan in the Major League Soccer after the Ivorian’s Montreal Impact lost by a goal to nil in New York.

The confrontation nearly came to blows with stadium security having to separate Drogba and the fan before the Montreal Impact striker returned to the dressing room.
