DIDIER DROGBA came back to haunt Arsene Wenger one more time as he busted out his iconic celebration against the Frenchman's team on Wednesday night.
The Chelsea icon, who retired three years ago, turned out for a Marseille legends team against a Unicef XI managed by the former Arsenal boss.
Drogba, 43, scored a HAT-TRICK in the 'Match de heroes'.
And that may not come as a surprise to Gooners who saw the Ivorian score 13 times in 15 games for Chelsea against Arsenal during his playing career.
With the score at 4-2 Drogba latched on to a clearance on the edge of the box and drilled it into the bottom left corner with his right foot.
And just as he did hundreds of times during his Stamford Bridge career the striker wheeled away to receive the adulation of the crowd.
As he jogged toward the corner flag he pumped his arms out in unison before laying down a classic knee slide.
A number of familiar faces took part in the match including Robert Pires, Mathieu Flamini, Samir Nasri and Jens Lehmann.

But it was Drogba who stole the show, much to the chagrin of Wenger.
The ex-Arsenal boss' side took a 2-1 lead but the Marseille legends roared back and, inspired by Drogba, ran out 7-4 victors.
In the latter stages Wenger threw on a few more famous former players in David Trezeguet, Patrick Kluivert and Esteban Cambiasso.
And he also gave the group of legends a direct pre-match team talk.
Wenger said: “Football is very simple. You control the ball, you make a good decision and after you execute well what you have decided to do.”
Five years ago Wenger spoke about Drogba after he netted against Arsenal in a pre-season friendly while playing for the MLS All-Star Team.
The ex-Gunners boss said: "He has always harmed us, and he continues. He's a winner and I think that he'll be like that until the end of his life.

"At half-time, I was thinking 'He's still haunting us, even in the United States!'
"Drogba is a typical poacher of a goal. He can do that in the box.
"When I see him in the box and fighting with young defenders I always think that now there is danger there because you know he will get the upper hand and score you a goal and that's what he did."
