Didier Drogba has termed his Champions League win in 2012 with Chelsea as the 'best moment in his career'.
The striker guided Chelsea to their only win in Europe, scoring the equalizer and the winning penalty against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.
Speaking on Thursday evening during the UEFA Champions League draw, Drogba, who also received the UEFA President’s Award, further opened up on his match-winning goals that became more of a trademark.
"I think it’s one of the best moments in my career, if not the best," said Drogba
"I had a manager when I was in Le Mans who told me “you don’t need to play 90 minutes, 10 minutes is enough for you to make the difference”. At first I was frustrated but I learned how to use those 10 minutes and be efficient. So all those goals in the last minutes, I think is also because of this lesson,"
UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin praised the striker, saying he has been an example of what footballers should be.
"Football is a reflection of society so we footballers have a responsibility towards the community because it’s the community that comes to the games. It’s the community that entertains. They mean a lot and we’ve seen during these last few games they were not in the stadiums, we saw how much we missed them,"
Meanwhile, Drogba's former side, Chelsea, have been drawn in Group E, alongside Sevilla, Krasnodar, and Rennes.
