Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba, has named Barcelona ace, Gerard Pique as the best defender he faced during his impressive career.
Drogba also hailed former Manchester United duo, Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic as one of the top partnerships he played against.
Drogba, a former captain of the Ivorian national team, hung up his boots this week and definitely, he will be remembered as one of the finest strikers the Premier League has produced.
The Ivorian played for clubs in France, England, Turkey, China and, finally, the USA
“It’s very difficult for me to say one that I played against because most of the time I was playing against two defenders, so one of the best pair I played against was Vidic and Ferdinand,’ “And the other one was [Carles] Puyol and Pique.” He said:
When asked to pick out the best defender of the bunch, Drogba said, “I think Pique because our battles were really, really tough.
“But at the same time, like with all of them, you know like big guys, top players, top men, class.”
“I think I’ve met enough managers to make it possible,” he added.
