How GOOD was Didier Drogba?

Africa has produced some of the most iconic strikers of all time in the past few decades.

Amongst the talent that the continent has had to offer, you’ll often hear names such as Samuel Eto’o, George Weah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, to name a few.

However only one of these players has ever directly contributed towards ending a civil war within their country, while also being known as the ultimate big game players out there. Otherwise known as a “clutch" player.

That man is Didier Drogba.

Highly renowned for his brute strength, pace, ball striking technique and overall selflessness, Drogba was truly one of a kind.

In his incredible career he has won every trophy on offer at club level and did so in style.

But perhaps you can’t recall how prolific this man once was. After all, he has been retired for a few years now.

So, with that being said, how good was Didier Drogba, really?

    Fun fact: Mourinho chose Drogba over Ronaldinho. Both had successful careers but why didn't he bring both? Another fun fact: Real Madrid apparently chose Beckham over Ronaldinho because he was too 'ugly'. Safe to say Barca didn't care about brand image

    Tuchel's Chelsea at time of writing has only conceded one goal in 4 EPL games, and that was through a Mo Salah penalty. At current rate Chelsea would only concede 10 goals this season! I think this current Chelsea squad will break or at the very least match that defensive record of Mou's Chelsea.

    For the youth of today, if you wanted a lone target man/ playmaking centre forward to lead a team's frontline forward trident in today's modern pressing game, that would be Didier Drogba. Pretty much what most managers like Deschamps/Klopp sees in Giroud/Firmino respectively. Drogba, however, was levels better. Didier was as strong as 2 top center backs, domineering in the air, had the nimble feet of a ballerina, magnetic ball control, 2 footed, cracking shot power, high work rate & pacey, clinical on the biggest moments, & great off pitch attitude/persona w/ leadership. He was a midfield maestro in a defender's body playing as the striker. A centre back pair's nightmare & a manager's dream. Unshakeable on the defensive line and when even on ball which freed up so much space for wide forwards or late midfield runners. Off-ball he would tussle with the opposition defense line, get thrown a long pass & stick it somehow then release or anchor for a teammate then pivot to the danger box. His goal tally -the primary kpi for a striker - does not reflect his true ability since he contributed so many more intangibles and allowed teammates to flourish. He has a golden boot to prove he can be a top scorer when needed be but his primary function at Chelsea was to be the attacking conduit. Cherry on the top, man was venomous in big games - cup finals & derbies. Any true football fan cannot hate this iconic player as he played pure beautiful game.
