Didier Drogba has started delivering what he has the best for Marseille and Chelsea in the last nine years – scoring goals. The 34-year-old has been instrumental in the good run of form that the Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua have been experiencing since his arrival a few weeks ago. It has been only three weeks since the arrival of the Ivory Coast international in China. He has already made a tremendous impact at the club after setting up the only goal of the game for his club in the 1-1 draw with Guangzhou in his debut match. Even though he may not have scored a goal in the last two matches, he said the record straight by scoring two goals in the match against Hangzhou Greentown.
Didier Drogba is still regarded as one of the best strikers in the world. He helped Chelsea win the match elusive Champions League title last season, but shocked the world by switching to Chinese football as a free agent after his contract with Chelsea came to an end. He has been rated as an icon in China even though has played very little football in this region. In these three matches, he has now scored two goals and has one assist to his name.
Hangzhou Greentown took the lead in the match before Didier Drogba equalised with a trademark goal. He then doubled the advantage for his club, which then turned into a rout. As a result of this impressive form, Shanghai Shenhua have been consistently climbing the table since the arrival of Didier Drogba. They were in the relegation position a few months ago, but they are now in ninth position after a run of five undefeated matches. If Drogba continues this kind of form, then Shanghai Shenhua can surely win the title this season.
