Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has joked he’s worried Liverpool forward Mo Salah will destroy all his records.

“If he continues he’s going to destroy all my records! I want to cry,” Didier Drogba joked about Mo Salah on Mehwar TV, as quoted by KingFut.

“What I’ve seen during training, and all his teammates will tell you, the quality was there. He just needed time on the pitch to show his talent and his quality.

“When you look at the squad we had at the time, it was not easy to play, but what really got me attached to Mo is that he’s really nice, he’s really polite, even when he was not playing.

“He was sad not to contribute, but he was always good. When you have this kind of intelligence it’s just a matter of time before you blow up.

“I remember we spoke a few times when he was at Roma and he was scoring goals and then he had a moment when he was not scoring and he asked me how to deal with this kind of situation.

“I shared with him a lot of examples and experience and how it happened to me and all the strikers.”

Drogba and Salah were teammates at Chelsea in 2014 during his second spell at the club.

Salah is now the highest-scoring African in the Premier League, a record previously held by Drogba.

However, the Chelsea legend is still the highest-scoring African in the Champions League, with 36 goals but Salah is closing in on the record as he has scored 31 Champions League goals.
