Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has told Blues strikers Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud to have confidence if they want to improve their football at Stamford Bridge.
Morata, who joined Chelsea in the summer of 2017, has scored 12 Premier League goals; while Giroud, who moved to Stamford Bridge in January this year, has netted just three times.
But Drogba, who played as Chelsea striker in two spells, has warned the strike duo to make themselves more difficult to play against.
Drogba said: “I hope they will have the same success that I had. When I came [to Chelsea] it wasn’t easy for me.”
“I think for strikers it is just a matter of confidence and do you want to improve your game and make yourself more difficult to play against.”
“I think that’s what they are doing and I hope they will get more success because they deserve it.”
After a goalless draw with West Ham United on Sunday afternoon, Blues manager Maurizi Sarri has also claimed that Morata only lacks the confidence.
“Alvaro has to gain confidence with one, two three goals. I am not able to give him confidence,” Sarri said.
“In this match, he had three or four opportunities. He was unlucky.”
“I hope for him in the future I can help him. But the confidence can come with goals.”
“Maybe two goals in two matches, I don’t know. For the first time in this season, he was ready in the box. He was on the ball and was active.”
