Peter Osgood is one of the best players his generation has seen. He is a phenomenal striker.
There is a statue that stands outside Stamford Bridge in his honour to welcome the fans to West Stand. The statue tells people that it is where legends are made. Osgood is probably the only Chelsea player who is remembered that way by a club.
The next time a statue is made, it will surely be of Didier Drogba. Jose Mourinho, the manager of the special one keeps on saying wonderful things about Didier this week. He said that Didier has a character that is bigger than just his body. This was after Drogba on Tuesday had almost spearheaded the Chelsea battle and put the team to a tie against the Shrewsbury Town. Mourinho added that whatever he did was because of his character and that is what makes a special player. He said that if he was a kid who was playing with such a guy as Didier, he would feel privileged.
Although 36 years old, Drogba showed himself to be the star of the match, when he brought the Chelsea match against Manchester United to a draw with 1 goal on each side. Chelsea fans feel privileged of seeing Drogba in Chelsea colours once again. Drogba had left the club after the Champions league two years ago and the fans thought that it was the last time they were seeing him.
When he returned to the club, expectations were very low from him as he had been playing in the two outposts of the football world: China and Turkey. These two countries are not exactly in very good books of the Premier League. So, the kick he made for the last ball was the one in which he delivered the Champions League.
Everything including the goals, the blood and the sweat that he had achieved in 8 years was all building up to come out at that moment.
