Since my childhood days I was never a fan for the game of football. Cricket was all that I knew and grew up among a lot of cricket frenzy friends. As time passed by I got to see a man from Ivory Coast, dressed in blue jersey on the television. His game was simply incredible, even a child would be astonished seeing him play and since then football was in my blood. We know him as Didier Drogba, but I call him as “Superman”. Chelsea was the lucky team to have him as a centre forward. He has scored more goals for Chelsea than any other foreign player and is currently Chelsea’s fourth highest goal scorer of all time. His key attributes include his physical strength, ability in the air, and his ability to retain possession of the ball.
In the summer of 2004 Drogba moved to Chelsea for a club record £24 million fee, making him the most expensive Ivorian player in history. In his debut season he helped the club win their first league title in 50 years, as well as the League Cup, and scored in the final. A year later he won another Premier League title. In 2006–07 Drogba scored 33 goals, won the Premier League Golden Boot and scored the winning goals in both the League Cup and FA Cup finals. He won the FA Cup for a second time in 2009, scoring the equalizer in the final, and in 2009–10 was instrumental in Chelsea clinching their first double, winning his second Golden Boot and scoring the only goal in the 2010 FA Cup Final. In March 2012, Drogba scored his 100th Premier League goal, the first African player to reach the milestone. He then became the only player in history to score in four separate FA Cup finals, when he scored in Chelsea’s win over Liverpool in the 2012 final. Drogba made his last appearance for Chelsea in the 2012 UEFA Champions League Final, in which he scored an 88th minute equalizer and then the winning penalty in the deciding shoot-out.

Didier must be living in the era of Lionel Messi, Christiano Ronaldo, David Villa but still he remains as a class apart. I am not kidding. You want evidence?? There you go mates:

Drogba would be playing for Shanghai Shenhua and could join his former team-mate Nicolas Anelka in China, who joined the club in January and had been acting as player-coach.
