In an interview with Bein Sports, former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho revealed how he convinced Abramovich to sign Didier Drogba.
I remember clearly how Abramovich was asking me, ‘Who? Who do you want as a striker?’. With all the big names in Europe at that time, I said Drogba. ‘Who is he? Where’s he playing?’, but I told him ‘Mr Abramovich – pay. Pay, and don’t speak’.”
The manager has always been full of praise for the Ivorian, and certainly didn’t hold back on it this time either. Take a look at the video above for the full interview.
