Chelsea legend Drogba defends Shanghai Shenhua wages

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba insists he deserves his mega bucks salary at Shanghai Shenhua.

He admits that he is being well paid in China.

But also insists: "When you work hard, you want to be rewarded - it is as simple as that. There will always be shock at wages, especially in France as there is always talk about that but in the City there are bigger rewards.

"There is jealously when it comes to footballers, people just think you have no brain, chase a ball and score goals to earn millions. In life I think you get what you deserve."
