Lille sensation Osimhen is Drogba mad: I want to meet him!

Lille star Victor Osimhen admits he grew up a fan of Chelsea icon Didier Drogba.

The Nigerian has been sensational in his first season with LOSC.

He told France Football: "Didier Drogba, that's my idol. In every sense of the term. For everything. The man, of course, and also the player he was.

"I grew up watching him. Still today, I'm addicted to his videos when I'm resting. In my free time, I go on YouTube, I look at his goals, his whole matches when he played in Marseille, Chelsea, Galatasaray...

"Unfortunately, I have not yet had the chance to meet him. I can not wait to meet him one day. It would be a moment that would stay in my heart forever. And I would take advantage of it to take advice!"
