Drogba: Greatest Respect For Gallas
After the deadline day shennanigans and the aftermath that was accusations of William threatening to score an own goal, Didier Drogba of all people has stepped up to the plate and defended his friend.
Chelsea's Josie Moaninho had claimed that Gallas refused to play and threatened that if he was forced he would get sent off or score and own goal, a claim which Gallas dismissies completely.
But Drogba says Billy is nothing but a professional.
'What I remember is that he gave 100% of himself from the first minute with Chelsea until the last. William is someone for whom I have the greatest respect.'
'He stayed true to his values.
After a bitty start to his Premiership career, and his diving antics, Drogba himself is due a little more respect.
After being boo'ed by the Stamford bridge faithful, the big Ivorian now battles to stay on his feet (Blackburn away was it?) and seems to be reaping the rewards this season.
Credit where credit is due all round then eh!
