Manchester United legend Nemanja Vidic had named Chelsea legend Didier Drogba as one of the best strikers he faced.

““He was a very clever player who would get into the brain of the defenders,” Vidic said.

“He was strong, but he was always thinking ahead. He used his strength well, he was really good in the box at Stamford Bridge, a close, tight stadium.

“Drogba was on you for the full game. Drogba would be even better if he didn’t get so many injuries. He was always around the box and very difficult to stop from scoring.

“He scored so many important goals, he was very consistent. I played against him when we were both at the peak of our careers.”
