Didier Drogba is my favourite player: Jose Mourinho
On Sunday night in London, Didier Drogba was honoured by the Football Writers Association for his outstanding contribution to Football in England. On that same night, Jose Mourinho penned a personal tribute to the man he calls his favourite ever.
Throughout my career, I have always refused to say which is my favourite player or the best person, because so many have given soul and blood to play and to fight with me, but if I have to choose one who represents all the good things you want in a player and a man, I think in this moment I would choose Didier.
I know what he means as a player and as a person. That is why this combination of the player and the person is so amazing, and I can say that he is a phenomenal person.
