Didier Drogba has arrived in China greeted by approximately 750 fans at Pudong International Airport on Saturday.

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.

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

Drogba’s debut is expected to come in Wednesday’s Chinese FA Cup fixture away to Changchun Yatai.
