Didier Drogba was voted the Chelsea's greatest ever player in an online poll conducted by Chelsea Magazine and this week he collected his award. Beating out club legends like Peter "The King of Stamford Bridge" Osgood, Chopper Harris, Gianfranco Zola, Bobby Tambling, John Terry and Frank Lampard, Drogba said that he felt the honor was perhaps "too big" for him. But coming off a season in which he carried the team to a first ever Champions League title and the fact that voters were likely on the younger side since the vote was conducted on the internet helps explain the result.

Drogba has been training at Chelsea's Cobham facilities during the Chinese Super League offseason. "I still feel a part of Chelsea, even if I am not here. My son plays here!" Drogba told the club's official website. Surely the expectations for that kid aren't too high at all.
