It’s been over two years since Didier Drogba brought his second spell at Chelsea to an end, but his legacy lives on at Stamford Bridge.
Nine years in total at the Blues saw Drogba become a club legend, scoring 104 Premier League goals and winning the title four times.
And without realising it, the Ivorian is still playing an important role in the success of his former employers.
Didi as he is fondly called famously scored the header against Bayern Munich that pushed the match on to extra time where he crowned it up with a winning penalty strike to give Chelsea their only Uefa Champions League trophy.
The iconic striker returned later under now Manchester united boss Mourinho and clinched for the last time a Premier league trophy and the English Football league cup
Alvaro Morata, who joined Chelsea in the summer from Real Madrid, recently admitted he watches videos of Drogba in his prime to develop as a striker.
“I put it on at home so I improve with Didier,” said the Spaniard.
Fast, powerful and lethal in front of goal, Drogba was a defender’s worst nightmare because he had absolutely everything.
Drogba became renowned for his unique hairstyle during his time in the Premier League, but his locks are a thing of the past after he shaved his head.
