Costa via the Evening Standard. “I have always seen Drogba as the example to follow in terms of a centre-forward. Just watching him train helped me. Just seeing him, I was amazed. When I arrived here, he was never cold with me, quite the opposite. I wasn’t exactly scared of him, but he was such a legend who had helped the club grow and been a part of all that.
Drogba was in his second stint with the Blues when Costa arrived as his long-term replacement.
