Mourinho reveals the shameless request of Drogba

Jose Mourinho revealed what he said to Roman Abramovich to sign Didier Drogba for Chelsea: "Pay and do not talk".

Drogba was one of Mourinho's first signings when the Portuguese coach arrived in English football, and the Ivorian striker dominated the Premier League with 157 goals in all competitions for the Blues.

Mourinho's team won the consecutive title and the League Cup trophy, but their collaboration was interrupted when the coach was fired in 2007 – an incident that reportedly left Drogba in tears.

Drogba remained at Stamford Bridge until 2012, leaving the summer after scoring the winning penalty in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

The striker returned to Stamford Bridge in 2014 to work again with Mourinho, and the duo won another title before Drogba left for Canada the following summer.

The Russian billionaire Abramovich is not known as a man who is used to saying how to spend his money without saying a word, but Mourinho has shown that he made his abrupt request for transfer while Drogba signed from Marseilles and continued to become a legend of the Stamford Bridge.

"Drogba is the kind of guy so loyal he never forgot to take him from Marseille to the Premier League, where he was not even expected, because he did not start very young at that level," he told BE SPORTS.

"He had already played for Guingamp, Marseilles, Le Mans, so when I brought it to Chelsea I clearly remember that Abramovich was asking me:" Who? Who do you want as a striker? "

"With all the big names in Europe at that time I said Drogba." Who is he? Where is he playing? "(I said)" Mr. Abramovich – pay. "Pay and do not talk." # 39;

"And Didier was an iconic player for Chelsea, for the Premier League."
