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."
