"People tend to describe things in this way.

"When people talk about Robert Lewandowski and [Karim] Benzema [Luis] Suarez [Harry] Kane], they would say it's world-class level. For me, it's all about being in good form.

"I belong to that group, I am at this level."

"He joined as an infant, but he joined as 17-years-old.

He was a natural talent but his game comprehension was poor. Didier Drogba was his father figure, who helped him develop his technique and understand movement.

"And then, I believe the two loans gave him that self-belief that he was worthy. He was young, but he still had something to prove.

"I don't think anyone at Chelsea respected him, not even the fans." Was he going be Chelsea's top striker when he played? Didier Drogba was right in front of him.

He was willing to take a loan to prove himself and he certainly returned with the self-belief and courage. His performances are outstanding and he has been quality.
