Ivory Coast is one country that has produced so many great African players over the years.The greatest of them all from the country is none other than the Legend Didier Drogba.Having won them an African nations cup and being their all time leading goal scorer,Drogba seemed irreplaceable in Ivory Coast.There is however a young king and hero in town doing good and on track to be even better that him.He is none other than 17 year old Karim Konate.Konate led ASEC Mimosas to the Ivorian league cup win last season becoming the youngest player to ever do so.He also finished the league as the top scorer with 17 goals and 7 assists.Currently at the ongoing African cup of nations tournament,he is the youngest player to ever provide an assist in the tournament's history.With more games and age still on his side,Konate has what it takes to be the best and will definitely surpass Drogba in future.
