Manchester City legend Yaya Toure has admitted that he always feared playing against Chelsea legend Didier Drogba during his time in the English Premier League (EPL).
Toure is regarded as one of the best midfielders in Premier League history.
He became a fan favourite during his eight years with Man City, winning the title on three occasions.
However, Toure has now admitted that he didn’t like clashing with his fellow countryman, Drogba, who was a menace throughout his playing career in England.
“The guy who I always feared to play against was him [Drogba],” Toure said (via ESPN).
“For me, his header was stronger than his shot.”
Drogba scored 104 goals in 254 league appearances, with five of them coming in 15 games against Man City.
