Sørloth: Drogba Was My Inspiration

1 February 2018

Eagles new striker Alexander Sørloth has revealed Ivory Coast legend Didier Drogba was his inspiration when he was growing up.

"As a kid Didier Drogba was my favourite player as a striker. Big, strong and fast and he could finish."

When asked though if he was similar to the former Chelsea striker the new boy in SE25 was quick to stress that it is now his turn to show the Palace fans what qualities he has.

"I don't know about that, I have to show it first."
