3. Didier Drogba – 73 goals
The Ivorian striker played under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea across two separate spells. He transformed into an elite player during their time together, leading to 73 goals and three Premier League titles.
Drogba shared a special relationship with Mourinho and often credited him for changing his life.
“We call him daddy,” he told The Guardian in 2013.
“I don’t know about all of us but he did a lot of things for me during that moment where I had a lot of critics. He was supporting me and helping me. He signed me for Chelsea and did everything.”
