Drogba waxes lyrical about Arsenal-linked Pepe
- One of Arsenal's possible targets Nicholas Pepe receives praise from Chelsea's legendary striker, Didier Drogba.
- Ivory Coast international praises his countryman for being able to play in tight situations.
- Didier jokingly admits tipping Nicolas how to become more efficient in front of the goal.
Didier Drogba was highly praiseful of Arsenal's alleged target, Nicholas Pepe: ''Big big big season [for Pepe]... Come from Angers then arrive in Lille and do that ... In his choices, he is good. He is lucky to work with someone like [head coach] Christophe Galtier. He learns a lot by his side. I was amazed by his ability to accelerate, to change pace in defensive or offensive transitions. He's very strong."
''Physically, he is someone who has the bottle and is able to repeat efforts in a very small space. We have already discussed and I gave him two, three tips on how to progress (laughs). He will be so important at the AFCON for Ivory Coast.''
