Chelsea boss Ancelotti: Drogba leadership makes him better than Liverpool's Torres

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti says it his Didier Drogba's leadership qualities that sets him apart from the likes of Liverpool striker Fernando Torres.

He told the Daily Mail: "I think he is one of the best in the world right now. I would put him alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto'o but I would not swap him for any of them.

"Maybe if you look at technique, Torres can be better, but there is more to football than technical quality. There are a lot of players with fantastic technique, but they are not leaders.

"They have not made the most of their careers, because they do not have a strong character, personality or courage. You need all of those as much as technique. Didier has it all. When you find a player who has talent and is unselfish: hai vinto. You've won."
