Didier Drogba told a brilliant story about Lionel Messi from 2012
Didier Drogba, who scored the winning penalty against Bayern Munich in the 2012 UEFA Champions league final, revealed a brilliant story about just how Messi’s goal record left him in disbelief.
Didier Drogba: “I remember a story very well. “Robbie Di Matteo did what he always did and put up a list of the opposing team’s top scorers,” Example lists with Wayne Rooney-22 goals, Robin van Persie-15 goals, and so on.
Then, one day, we faced Barcelona and when he put the scorers list, in third place there was Xavi with 14 goals, in second place Alexis Sanchez and Cesc Fàbregas were 15 goals away.
But we all started to laugh when the top scorer appeared on the screen. It was Leo Messi. With 63 goals including 14 goals in the Champions League. 63 goals this season!
It was such a crazy number that we looked at each other with disbelieving faces and started laughing. What else could we do? I even took a photo of the number of goals because it was outrageous.”
Lionel Messi scored 91 goals that year
