A talented striker advances the team’s standing among the top teams around the globe. Since Didier Drogba left the Chelsea football team in 2015, the club has had trouble finding a striker who can live up to his legendary status. Didier Drogba, an Ivorian, had a stellar career that included 254 games, 104 goals, 55 assists, two golden boots, and four English Premier League championships. He became one of the greatest scorers in history, leaving a lasting impression on the team. The blues have since been on the field looking for a successor to the legend superstar Didier Drogba.
The newly acquired Diego Costa, who had shared the field with Didier Drogba in the 2014–2015 season, seemed to be the Ivorian’s replacement, but he stayed at Stamford Bridge for three seasons only. Didier Drogba, who was acquired by then-coach Jose Mourinho from Galatasaray, was the primary striker for the blues during the end of the 2000s and the beginning of the 2010s. He assisted them in winning significant European trophies including the Champions League and League Titles.
Since that time, Chelsea has been searching for a talented striker to fill Didier Drogba’s legendary shoes. Alvaro Morata, Olivier Giroud, and Gonzalo Higuain were all signed by the blues, but they were unable to live up to Didier Drogba’s history because they did not even stay at Stamford Bridge for very long.
The Blues have recently been performing well, having taken home the Champions League Trophy for the second time and finishing in the top three of the Premier League Table. Young stars are everywhere at the club, a trend that previous coach and great Legend Frank Lampard started.
Some youth youngsters were elevated by Lampard and developed into outstanding players, including Reece James, Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, and Fikayo Tomori. Timo Werner, Kai Haverts, and Ben Chilwell are just a few of the young, talented players whom Frank also signed. If they are not sold by the team, Timo Werner and Kai Haverts stand a good opportunity of continuing Drogba’s legacy at Stamford Bridge. In recent Blues games, Timo and Haverts both scored significant goals, demonstrating their continued excellence as top strikers. More than Didier Drogba, these strikers are more likely to succeed at Stamford Bridge.
