Former Chelsea defender William Gallas has paid a huge compliment to his former teammate, rival and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba for his intimidating presence.

Gallas, who moved from Chelsea to Arsenal and faced Drogba on numerous occasions said he never enjoyed facing the Ivorian in games.

“I was used to seeing him in training, but you know how it goes: you’re never going at 100 per cent on the training pitch,” he said.

“So I never really understood why Senderos would just go missing in every match he played against Didier. But when I played against him myself in the Premier League with Arsenal, then I understood.

“He had something about him, a power I’d never sensed as a team-mate, an aura I had never seen before. Facing that, you just shit yourself. He was so intimidating that it rattles you.”

Drogba was Arsenal's nemesis throughout his stay at Chelsea, scoring a total of 13 goals against them, including 8 goals in the Premier League.
