Before arriving at the club in 2004 as a relatively unknown Ligue 1 striker, nobody could have predicted the success that Didier Drogba would enjoy during his nine years at Chelsea.
In a career which saw the striker win one Champions League medal, four Premier League titles, and four FA Cups, the talismanic forward soon established himself as a fan favourite.
Today marks the 13th anniversary of the signing of Drogba, a player who scored 157 goals in 341 appearances for the Blues.
Above all, the 39-year-old striker will be best remembered for scoring the decisive penalty against Bayern Munich in the club’s first Champions League final victory.
Although the former Blues striker is currently playing for Phoenix Rising Football Club in the United States, you can relive some of his best moments by watching the video below.
