Many footballers in their prime become inspiration for the younger players.
One such instance can be seen in Didier Drogba. Being 38 years of age, he has been known for the football skills he exhibited as center forward. Being part of the Montreal Impact since 2015, he is known to have inspired many to become a star footballer like himself. One current instance can be cited as Michy Batshuayi who is a striker from New Chelsea.
He is keen to follow the footsteps of the player at Stamford Bridge. Michy signed up with Chelsea this summer and he wishes to emulate the success that Didier Drogba has achieved. Batshuayi moved from Marseille in France to Stamford Bridge this Sunday. He has signed a deal with Chelsea for a period of five years. Being a Belgium international player, he states that he would like to follow in the footsteps of Drogba, who made a similar move in 2004 when he comes to Chelsea from Marseille. Drogba made history for the club with the numerous goals that he scored for them, including the penalty kick that secured his team’s win in 2012 Champions League.
Drogba’s playing style might be different from what the Belgium international player follows, but he hopes to achieve success for the club the same way Drogba did in his time. Drogba currently plays for Montreal Impact. Didier achieved a lot for Chelsea and Batshuayi says that he respects his achievements and skills and hopes that he will be his inspiration to achieve similar success for Chelsea. Being 22 years of age, he definitely has a long way to go in his football playing career. He also admits to being fan of Ronaldo and wishes to be a player like his star some day.
