Drogba reveals Lollichon influence on Chelsea shootout triumph

Chelsea goalkeeper coach Christophe Lollichon had a big influence on their successful Champions League final penalty shootout. In his diary with France Football, Didier Drogba revealed Lollichon had briefed the players on Bayern Munich keeper Manuel Neuer's tactics in a penalty shootout.

Lollichon had worked out that Neuer always dived to the left for right-footed players and to the right for left-footed players.

Drogba said: "Even before I struck the ball, I saw him move to the left. I knew it was won."
