Toure: Wilf Will Be The Next Drogba

19 April 2017


Wilfried Zaha can be as good as former Chelsea striker & Ivory Coast captain Didier Drogba according to defender Kolo Toure. 

Speaking to TRUE Africa, the former Liverpool and Arsenal defender said that the Palace winger not only made the right decision to play for Ivory Coast but that he is an amazing talent. 

"He is fantastic, a great player and I think he made a great decision. Nowadays to play for England is tough. There is so much great talent and the competition is really really tight."

His decision to choose the Ivory Coast has not only been applauded by Toure but he feels the Eagles winger can still reach new heights. 

The 24 year old has this season scored six goals and assisted in nine as well as scoring at intenational level.

"What he is doing now is great and he is playing amazing with other good players around him.
 
"For Wilfried Zaha to play for Ivory Coast – he will be the next Didier Drogba!  We are really happy. I know people in England are not so happy, but for Ivory Coast it is one of the best things that can happen to our country's team."
