Chelsea legend Didier Drogba is proud to be the "idol" of Romelu Lukaku.

Blues striker Lukaku is shining this season on-loan at Everton.

Galatasaray centre-forward Drogba said: "It is true that I am his idol. For me it's flattering to see a young person like him identify with me. But again, and he said it very well, you should let him become Lukaku.

"He has certain qualities that I do not and others that I have and he has not, but he must have time. We must let him work quietly.

"Stop comparing him to Didier Drogba! He's Romelu Lukaku."
