John Terry Pays Homage to ‘The King’ Didier Drogba After Striker’s Retirement

Chelsea legend John Terry has paid tribute to ‘The King’ Didier Drogba after the striker confirmed his retirement from professional football on social media yesterday.

Terry himself is a bona fide Blues legend among supporters for all of the things he achieved on the Stamford Bridge pitch during his playing days, so a tribute like this from him speaks volumes about the huge impact Drogba had on the club’s dressing room:

With 157 goals in 341 games across all competitions, as well as four Premier League titles and four FA Cups, Drogba is unquestionably a Chelsea hero, but where does he rank in terms of the Premier League’s all-time greats?
