Blues legend Didier Drogba was one of Jose Mourinho’s first marquee signings as a Chelsea manager, as he signed the Ivorian for £25 million.
The Ivorian scored a whopping 101 Premier League goals in eight seasons at Stamford Bridge, and Michael Owen believes he changed the game for every striker in the Premier League.
Speaking in FourFourTwo ‘s The Art of Goalscoring documentary, Owen said: “When I was growing up it was always two centre forwards,” starts Owen. “And it was always about how you could work together, how you could link together as a big man and little man.
“And I think the introduction, in my eyes anyway, of Didier Drogba at Chelsea, when Jose Mourinho played him upfront on his own, got a lot of people thinking, ‘We can get one big man to do a bit of everything’.”
