Former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has named Didier Drogba as the hardest striker he had to face in his career.
“People say: ‘You had a difficult game against Torres’, but it was just the one game. I went to head the ball but changed my mind and tried to pass to Edwin [van der Sar]. I misjudged the distance and Torres scored,” the Serbian told ‘fourfourtwo’.
“Drogba was tougher. Torres always created a chance to score, but Drogba was on you for the full game. Drogba was physically the hardest; [Luis] Suarez and [Sergio] Aguero were the best.”
‘Drogba would be even better if he didn’t get so many injuries. They were the top three I played against’
He added on current all-action Chelsea striker Diego Costa: ‘How would I deal with Diego Costa today? I’d deal with him like I did the others. You are what you are and I played my own game against everyone
