​Chelsea legend Drogba reveals his toughest opponents

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has been telling Rio Ferdinand who made life difficult for him to score goals.

When asked about the most difficult battles he had taken part in during his career in England, Drogba told Ferdinand on BT Sport: "I've always said you and Vidic.

"People say I scored a few goals against Manchester United and I would say when I was scoring against Manchester United I was really, really happy because I didn't score much.

"So for me to score against you guys means that I had a good game."

Speaking about Carles Puyol, who has now retired from Barcelona, Drogba said: "And Carles Puyol because he's tough, is a very good defender but he's a gentleman."
