LIGUE 1 - Marseille: Bamba Dieng compared to Didier Drogba
Scored a double against AS Monaco, and another goal against Stade Rennais for his first at the Vélodrome, Bamba Dieng continues to be talked about thanks to his very good performances with Olympique de Marseille.
After receiving the compliments of his trainer Jorge Sampaoli, it was his compatriot El-Hadji Diouf, ex-Liverpool and Bolton striker, who did not hesitate to compare him to a former Olympian glory: Didier Drogba.
“I got to know him with the national youth team. He's a striker, a Didier Drogba. All he can do is score goals. I watched him with Diambars, and he was close to being one of the top scorers in the Senegal league. He is a young man with a future. The Senegal team, too, may have found their great striker. All I have to say is keep his head on his shoulders, keep working. On three occasions, he can give you two. He's a striker who ends up in the box." He told Canal + Africa.
