Drogba: Ronaldo, Messi Have Revolutionized Goal Scoring

Drogba Shanghai Shenhua striker Didier Drogba has branded Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as soccer’s two “monsters.”

The 34-year old was talking about his selection for the winner of the 2012 Ballon d’Or, but refused to share who his choice would be, and instead took the time to talk of his admiration for the pair, reports Goal.com.

“We all know it is between two, the two monsters that are Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo,” he told FranceFootball.fr. “You do not realize but they have revolutionized the statistics. Before them it was a feat to score 30 goals a season in a major championship. For several years now they have scored over 40. They are phenomenal. I cannot tell you who my vote is going to though, as I will be killed.”

The Cote d’Ivoire international also revealed that he is still in touch with Jose Mourinho, who he played for during his time at Chelsea.

“I always get messages from him, and Abramovich too,” Drogba said. “The problem with this is that Jose does not understand there is a large time difference and he sends me texts whenever I am asleep!”
