Didier Drogba Names His Favourite Chelsea Teammate During His Time At The Club
He played with a lot of talented players at Chelsea but Didier Drogba has named his favourite teammate whilst at Stamford Bridge.
Drogba called the likes of Eden Hazard, Michael Ballack, Arjen Robben and John Terry, among others, colleagues during his glittering career at Chelsea.
Not to mention Frank Lampard who Drogba has hailed as his favourite Chelsea teammate.
"There's one that I'm going to put a bit more in front because most of my goals came from him, it's Frank Lampard," the Ivorian legend said.
Drogba added: "Also because every day after training we were staying on the pitch trying to practise, trying to create some exercises because the ones we did a few days ago were becoming too easy.
"So, we were trying to bring in new exercises and that's how we progressed and challenged each other to score goals, to create assists and for me I learned a lot from him."
He spent his whole Chelsea career alongside Lampard until 2012 where he left for China.
As well as playing with some of the best players in world football, he also come up against some of the very best defenders.
And he's singled out Gerard Pique for special praise.
"It's very difficult for me to say one that I played against because most of the time I was playing against two defenders, so one of the best pair I played against was Vidic and Ferdinand. And the other one was [Carles] Puyol and Pique," he said.
"I think Pique because our battles were really, really tough.
"But at the same time, like with all of them, you know like big guys, top players, top men, class."
Chelsea and Barcelona had some classic encounters in Europe with Drogba dropping a huge complement on the Spaniard, who is still going strong.
