Drogba Drags Todd Boehly, Blasts Chelsea Players After Champions League Exit

Former Chelsea star, Didier Drogba has claimed that the current crop of Chelsea players lacks charisma and leadership.

The former Blues striker was visibly upset after Chelsea suffered another defeat, this time at the hands of Real Madrid in the Champions League, making it Frank Lampard’s fourth straight defeat since taking charge of the club.

Drogba stated that he no longer recognises the clubs, stressing that the new owners led by Todd Boehly have a vision which seems to be to buy young players, a departure from when the club bought experienced players with strong characters which helped them dominate English football.

“They lack charismatic leaders,’ Drogba told Canal Plus on Tuesday evening. We need players who take the game on their own and take their responsibilities. You need a player who brings madness to the stadium. I no longer recognise my club.

“It’s not the same club anymore. There is a new owner and a new vision. Of course, we try to compare with what was done during the Abramovich era where there were a lot of player acquisitions but the choices were very smart.

“Bringing in a Petr Cech, [Andriy] Shevchenko, [Hernan] Crespo, Didier Drogba, Michael Essien, [Florent] Malouda and so on is to win titles,” Drogba said.

“These were players who had some experience. Here we are betting on very young players, but a dressing room with more than 30 players is difficult [to manage] for a coach,” he added.
