The playoffs are looming, and there is drama brewing in Montreal.

Didier Drogba demanded to be taken off of the Montreal Impact’s gameday squad after being informed that he would not be starting in Sunday’s match against Toronto FC, according to Goal. The Ivorian star reportedly had a falling out with head coach Mauro Biello after learning  Matteo Mancosu had been named to the starting XI for Sunday’s clash.

According to the Impact, Drogba’s absence was due to a back problem.

Drogba had been linked with a surprise move to Napoli earlier this week. The Impact needed a win from Sunday’s match against TFC to seal a playoff berth.
