At 36, Didier Drogba's play is delightful - Mourinho
« on: December 04, 2014, 06:32:40 PM »
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho lauded Didier Drogba's longevity as the Ivory Coast striker rolled back the years in an influential showing in last night's 3-0 victory over Tottenham.

Spurs were bidding for a first win at Stamford Bridge since February 1990 at the 28th attempt and began well, with Harry Kane hitting the crossbar with an early header.

Chelsea stepped up with two goals in four first-half minutes, with Drogba providing the first for Eden Hazard before scoring himself as his second spell shows signs of enhancing his legendary status at the club.

The 36-year-old's replacement, Loic Remy, added a third in the second half.

"It's remarkable," said Mourinho, who expects Drogba to see out his playing career at Chelsea before staying on at the club in some capacity.

"First of all he's a team player.

"After that he's one of these old days mentality. Not selfish, not vain. A humble guy, who plays for the team, fights for the team. Fantastic."
