The striker of Shanghai Shenhua, Didier Drogba, has said that his tenure at Shanghai Shenhua has been fantastic so far and he is enjoying his time here in China.
Drogba has joined Shenhua this summer after leaving Chelsea. He has performed brilliantly for the club since the start of the season. He has played seven matches so far in the ongoing season and has found the back of the net on five occasions. His presence in the Shenhua squad is also drawing more and more people towards the stadium. The Supporters have turned out in huge numbers in all the home matches of Shenhua so far.
On being asked about the Chinese Super League, Drogba said that it’s a fantastic league. People love football here in China and the atmosphere in the stadiums during the matches has been unbelievable. It’s an absolute joy to play in front of Chinese crowd. They make a lot of noise and get behind their team like crazy.
On being asked about the new manager of the club, Sergio Batista, Drogba said that he is a good manager. He has quite a lot of experience in this field. He has managed several teams in the last 12 years. He has come with some good ideas, but, it’s up to the players to execute his plans in the middle.
Batista had also been the coach of Argentina National team. He had resigned from his post in 2011 after the below par performance of the Argentinean team in Copa America last year.
On being asked about the player whom he has found the toughest to compete against, Drogba said that the Barcelona striker, Lionel Messi, is the one who is very hard to control on the field. You can’t afford to relax even for a second if you are up against Messi.
