“Our relationship means the world to me,” Romelu Lukaku said of Didier Drogba.
“It’s not like we talk once a month, I talk to the guy every few days! We have a group chat so we’re constantly communicating and I’ve been on the phone with him a bit more in the past two weeks.
“‘I had a lot of questions to ask and he still knows a lot of people here so he really prepared me well with the last details.
“Now I just need to get to know the players and the manager a bit better and just be available as quickly as possible for the team.”
Didier Drogba is a Chelsea legend, so for Lukaku, who admired him as a Blues fan growing up, having such a good relationship with him is a privilege.
