Former Chelsea striker, Didier Drogba, has said he wants to cry because Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah is destroying all his records.
Salah has been on fire for the Reds and has since overtaken Drogba’s record of 104 Premier League goals by an African player.
But the former Ivorian captain insists he is not amazed by what Salah is achieving, because he had seen his qualities in training during his brief stint with the Blues before he eventually left for Serie A.
“If he continues [like this] he’s going to destroy all my records! I want to cry,” Drogba told Mehwar TV as quoted by Kingfut.
“What I’ve seen during training, and all his teammates will tell you, the quality was there. He just needed time on the pitch to show his talent and his quality.
“When you look at the squad [Chelsea] had at the time, it was not easy to play, but what really got me attached to Mo is that he’s really nice, he’s really polite, even when he was not playing.”
