Chelsea legend Didier Drogba: I love Diego Costa’s fight
Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has heaped praise on his teammate Diego Costa for his fighting qualities as well as his goalscoring prowess.
The Spaniard has been a revelation since his move to Stamford Bridge after scoring nine goals in his opening seven Premier League games.
The 36-year-old club icon, in his second spell at the Blues, says he is happy to see how Costa has taken on the mantle at the club.
“What I like in him is his character. We are quite similar, we never give up. That’s one point that makes me smile and respect him more,” Drogba told the Evening Standard.
“This start he’s made is fantastic. It’s what all strikers are dreaming of and he will want to continue because the season will be long and we will need him for important games.
“That’s why the squad is big with a lot of quality players. He is doing the job, he is doing what he has to do for the team to win trophies.”
