Lampard reveals what Morata must do to emulate Chelsea Legend, Didier Drogba

Former Chelsea midfielder, Frank Lampard, has revealed what striker, Alvaro Morata must do to be like club Legend, Didier Drogba.

Lampard said that Morata will need to spend ten productive years at the Blues to get near Drogba.

Drogba, during his time at Stamford Bridge, scored 164 goals for the Premier League champions.

Morata is hoping to tread a similar path, following a £70 million summer move from Real Madrid, and has set about that task in a positive manner after netting 12 goals and providing four assists so far.

Lampard, though, admitted the Spain international has some way to go before he can claim to be as important to the cause as a forward he enjoyed many memorable triumphs alongside.

When pressed on what Morata can achieve for Chelsea, Lampard said, “Ask me in 10 years.

“Didier Drogba produced it for 10 years and pretty much won Chelsea the Champions League. Without him we wouldn’t have won it.

“He produced many a great moment in big games. But Morata has big potential.

“Didier Drogba is another thing but if Morata stays for 10 years, maybe he can [emulate him].”
