Montreal Impact fan welcomes Didier Drogba with Star Wars-themed video

Didier Drogba's decision to honour the final year of his Montreal Impact deal rather than return to Chelsea as a coach has many Canadian supporters dreaming of a first MLS championship next season -- but at least one fan thinks the Ivorian can go even further and save the galaxy.

Or at least that appears to be the message of a bizarre new Star Wars-themed Drogba tribute video, in which the 37-year-old's exploits in MLS last season are paired with the trailer commentary from the Hollywood franchise's legendary sixth installment, "Return of the Jedi."

Drogba scored 12 goals in 14 MLS appearances in his debut campaign for the Impact, firing the team to their first Eastern Conference semifinal appearance in franchise history, and in the video a montage of his goals and celebrations are set to the surreal soundtrack of light sabre swishes and shots from laser blasters.

Most striking of all, however, is the inclusion of Admiral Ackbar's famous line, "It's a trap!" utterly out of context halfway through the video.
