Chelsea defeated Reading 4-3 in pre-season as Frank Lampard’s side followed up a good win against Barcelona with a seven-goal thriller at the Madejski Stadium.

Before the game against Reading, Chelsea FC posted a clip of Drogba scoring against Reading in a 2-1 win 12 years ago.

For the goal, Drogba managed to combine well with Salomon Kalou, before sending a drive from 30 yards out that beat the goalkeeper. His right-footed effort then flew into the bottom-right corner for the Premier League win.

The video has been viewed over 600,000 times, and Drogba commented on the video, thanking Kalou for the assist and also commended the fans reaction.

Drogba commented: “Listen to our fans reaction.

“Can never get tired of this – thanks for assisting me, Salomon.”

Chelsea fans were as well pleased to be reminded of the goal and the legend.

“Drogba’s blood is blue,” one supporter said.

Another commented: “King Drog.”

While a third simply added: “My legend.”

Drogba won three Premier League titles and one Champions League alongside Lampard at Chelsea during their playing days and Drogba was very vocal on Lampard’s appointment before he was eventually given the job.

Drogba was delighted to see Lampard back at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea boss, and he posted on Instagram after Lampard’s appointment was confirmed: “Good luck, proud to see you coming back home Frank Lampard.”
