Jose Mourinho on signing Didier Drogba

Jose Mourinho on signing Didier Drogba:

“In the first match we played against each other, I’d hardly sat down when he scored. Didier Drogba celebrated that goal like it was his last, the crowd went mad, the noise was deafening.”

“At half-time I found him in the tunnel and told him, ‘I don’t have the money to buy you, but do you have any cousins that can play like you in the Ivory Coast?’ He laughed, hugged me and said, ‘one day you’ll be in a club which can buy me.'”

“Six months later I signed for Chelsea. I had a number of options, but I arrived and said, ‘I want Didier Drogba.’ Doubts and Questions were raised by a few people: ‘Why this one?’, ‘Why not that one?’, ‘Are you sure he will adapt?’, ‘Is he really that good?’… ‘I want Didier Drogba,’ I said.” The rest is history

“Those goals brought him titles and awards, but what stays with me are the countless stories we have together.”

Mourinho’s love for African players is just beautiful.
