I want to kill a colleague who tackled me during Drogba training. Mourinho’s after the game.
Steve Sidwell, who has played for Chelsea, revealed an anecdote about Jose Mourinho and Didier Drogba.
Drogba has played for Chelsea for nearly a decade since 2004. He scored 164 goals in 381 games and lifted numerous championships, including four English Premier League (EPL) championships and one Champions League championship. He also showed outstanding presence in the national team. He is the highest scorer in Ivory Coast’s history (65 goals in 104 A matches) 토토사이트
In particular, Drogba made headlines after confirming his advance to the 2006 World Cup in Germany in October 2005 by appealing to TV broadcasting cameras, “Everyone, let’s put down our weapons and stop the war just for a week.” Ivory Coast was engaged in a civil war. After Drogba’s remarks, he didn’t go to war for a week, and after that, he signed a complete peace agreement.
The coach who maintained the closest relationship with Drogba is Mourinho, who is currently leading Tottenham Hotspur. In particular, Drogba won the EPL scoring title (20 goals) under Mourinho in the 2006-07 season, and played a major role in Chelsea lifting the League Cup and FA Cup trophy.
In this situation, Sidwell, who has played for Chelsea, mentioned an anecdote involving Drogba and Mourinho. Sidwell joined Chelsea based on his performance at Reading in 2007. However, he failed to play in many games due to competition for the starting lineup, and eventually left for Aston Villa after a year.
Sidwell said in an interview with Britain’s “BT Sports” that “the players trained as if they were going to smash each other when they recalled the training ground during Chelsea.” “I remember when Michael Essien broke Andriy Shevchenko in two while training,” he said.
Sidwell said, “Something similar happened to Drogba. When he was tackled by Tal Benheim, he immediately stood up and exploded with anger, saying, “I want to kill him.” Mourinho, who saw this, told Drogba, “We need Benheim for the weekend. “We can kill him next week,” he added.
