Chelsea ace Hazard: Honour to share pitch with Drogba

Chelsea ace Eden Hazard was thrilled to share the pitch with Galatasaray striker Didier Drogba on Tuesday night.

Hazard is swiftly inheriting the title of Chelsea's attacking talisman which once belonged to Drogba, who is now 36.

"As I said to him after the game finished, it was a pleasure to play against him," the Belgium playmaker said.

"He is still one of the best strikers in the world. It is true that he is no longer young but that's how we young players learn - by meeting people like him.

"I have nothing but respect for what he has done and what he is still doing. I admire Didier for the player he is and the type of person he is."
