Chelsea legend Didier Drogba is seen as one of the greatest players in the club’s history.

Drogba cemented his place as a Chelsea legend in 2012 when he played a key role in helping Chelsea win the Champions League in Munich.

Thomas Tuchel believes Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante can be spoken about in the same way as Didier Drogba.

Asked if Kante should be spoken of alongside Drogba, Tuchel said: “For sure, but because he is not that obvious, he is not in the spotlight, he is even more important for a team because a guy like N’Golo with the mentality of a helper, a water carrier, this makes the difference and big teams and successful teams need this.

“That’s why we love him so much, and everybody wants to play with him and why we miss him so much when he is not there.”
