Van Basten in amazing attack on Chelsea icon Drogba

Dutch legend Marco van Basten was unimpressed by the antics of Chelsea ace Didier Drogba during their famous Champions League triumph over Barcelona.

Indeed, Van Basten says Drogba didn't look a 'big player' over the two legs!

Van Basten told the Sunday Mirror: "In the first leg against Barcelona, Drogba really ­annoyed me. In the Nou Camp he was less irritating. But he was left all on his own in the front line.

"Drogba has had great years at ­Chelsea. He was a big player. I say 'was', because he did not look the big player in the semi-final.

"At Stamford Bridge he was going down like a dying swan all the time.

"He did not need to do that, with his status. When I see him like that, I find it ­irritating and it gives you the idea that he has lost it.

"But he was always capable of brilliant things. He can still be the match-winner in ­Munich."
