Didier Drogba reflects on his final Chelsea season, his toughest opponents, and big Champions League moments

New, comments

Here's Didier Drogba's full interview with ex-Manchester United foe Rio Ferdinand that aired on BT Sport. It's well worth your time; even Rio's quite likable as an interviewer.

Drogba, of course, is a natural in front of the camera; he's only gaining more charisma as he gets older. He talks about the season that's been, about how young this current (but very good!) edition of Chelsea is, and about how they can progress together in the future. As the elder statesman, he didn't feel as connected to this title win as his previous three with the club, but that's understandable.

The two Premier League legends also reflect on their shared battles both domestically (Rio thanks Didier for a ruined summer after that goal in the 2007 FA Cup) and in Europe (with a bit of insight about the Champions League final in Moscow). Drogba names Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, and Carles Puyol as the toughest defenders he's faced in his career.

And then they talk about happy moments and Mourinho's influence. And Drogba names Lampard as the best player he's played with. This may be the best twelve-minute video you see all week.
