Cech reveals why Drogba was successful at Chelsea after Hall of Fame induction

Petr Cech gave a tribute to Didier Drogba in his column for the Chelsea website. Drogba is one of the newest entrants into the Premier League Hall of Fame along with 7 others.

“I first came across Didier in France when I was at Rennes and he was playing for Guingamp.

“He was flying, and then he went to Marseille and was top goalscorer in Ligue 1. So when he signed for Chelsea, I knew what a good signing it was.

“He was big, he was strong, he was powerful, he could finish every type of ball coming into the box, he could do it himself. He held the ball up, he was dominant in the air. He could take free-kicks.

“One on one he was good, right foot, left foot. It was perfect. We were getting a really strong player. I knew we had a chance to win something when a player like him was joining.

“We arrived at Chelsea the same summer. We were new people. We knew each other because we came from the same league and had played against each other.

“In France, I had been in the Team of the Year, and he was the top goalscorer. We had a common goal to make our mark again, and to win things. We had the French connection, the language connection.

“We could help each other. We always got on well because we wanted to do our best to win.”
