There’s cock-eyed and then there’s this…
Stamford Bridge was a Didier Drogba love-fest on Tuesday night on the Ivorian’s return to his old Chelsea stomping ground.
Chelsea honoured their former striker with a flowery pre-game presentation, however once kick off rolled over, the truth is that Drigba failed to cause much trouble.
Overall’s Drogba’s stats against Chelsea read 2 shots (zero on target), one chance created, six aerial duels won, he was fouled four times, while the Galatasaray forward lost ball seven times for his side.
Despite his average performance, Chelsea captain John Terry voiced his belief that Drogba remains the best striker in world football in a post match interview with Chelsea TV.
Locked arm-in-arm with the African legend, Terry held a straight face as he yapped:
It felt strange (playing against Drogba), but there’s no-one better is there, in the world for me still, still to this day.
