Didier Drogba says his former boss Jose Mourinho is still the Special One — and would have won the title “two or three times” if he was the Manchester City manager.
Mourinho’s side haven’t started the season on a high as they sit in eighth spot in the Premier League table, with their style of play constantly being scrutinised.
However, Chelsea icon Drogba reckons the Red Devils manager, who enjoyed great success in two spells in charge at Stamford Bridge after winning the Premier League three times, has “taking the challenge” to restore the glory days at Old Trafford.

Drogba told the Mirror: “I think if you put him at Manchester City, he would have won the league twice, maybe two or three times. You get criticism because you set a standard of winning, winning and winning and now you’re not winning or having the same results.
“He is still there. You have to look at all the managers who were at Manchester United the last few years. Being manager after Sir Alex Ferguson is not easy and the finances that they had then are not the same as what they have now.
“People only pay attention to the best and he’s one of the best and that’s why he gets all of this.
“I think he’s taking the challenge, because it’s a big challenge and if people criticise you then how can you enjoy it? It’s tough. After all, he’s human.
“He’s trying to change his approach and that’s what the best managers do and when things are not working you try to change it.”
