Didier Drogba: Zlatan and I are similar in a lot of areas


Striker Didier Drogba has warned his team-mates that Chelsea's defensive powers will be tested to the limit when they come up against Zlatan Ibrahimovic tonight.

The 33-year-old scored 16 goals in 23 games in all competitions this campaign but Drogba has pointed out there is more to Ibrahimovic's game than scoring goals.

"[Zlatan] Ibrahimovic is a player who has changed a lot," Drogba told Canal Plus.

"He has come to understand that he will have to play for the team in order to help them forward.

"I like his style of play and aggressiveness a lot. We are similar in a lot of areas."

With a number of key players not available, PSG coach Laurent Blanc has a selection headache ahead of the game but the 36-year-old says the Les Rouge-et-Bleu will still field a very strong line-up.

"I do not agree with those who claim Paris Saint-Germain are wounded," he said.

"Absolutely not. They are preparing themselves for this Champions League tie and they will be ready for it."
