Chelsea defender and Vice-captain Gary Cahill has revealed Chelsea striker Diego Costa reminds him of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.
Cahill acknowledged Costa has become a fans’ favourite just as Didier Costa and he believes Diego Costa can reach the heights of Didier Drogba at Chelsea.
Cahill said: “The fans are getting behind him because he is banging goals in and winning us football matches.
“Didier was a huge figure, goalscoring-wise, on and off the pitch, personality wise.
“You need strikers like that at a club like Chelsea and Diego is fitting into that role nicely. This season he is on fire.
“He is up there with the very best in world football at the moment. The stats don’t lie. We hope that continues.”
