Stop being sentimental. Sallah as it stands now has better stats overall than Drogba in almost every sense. In the big games that Drogba showed up, he also did. Sallah is not a point man like Drogba but still managed to surpass his EPL goal tally with far lesser number of seasons played (4 compared to Drogba's cool and with almost 100 games less (107 goals in 167 games to Drogba's 104 goals in 254 games). Same Sallah holds the record for the highest number of EPL goals in a 38-game season which he achieved in 2017/2018 season, 32 goals. This is in the same EPL top strikers much better than Drogba like Ronaldo, Suarez and Aguero could not achieve for years. The records speak for themselves not talk of who be mate or whatever.

Give it a rest with these unnecessary Epistles...

No one who knows football will dare bring Drogba's name beside any of today's African stars.

Even Salah will be shocked and scandalized by such nonsense and childishness!!!

Y'all should learn to respect legends. That's how people try to bring Pele to compare with Messi and Ronaldo! For what na?!!

I will compare when sallah has achieved what drogba has achieved in his football career. One man who single handedly gave Chelsea their first ever champions league win
how did he singlehandedly do it oo. Lampard, Terry, malouda etc. Drogba was not even d highest champions league scorer that year..

Argue with facts. I laid them before you. I watched both of them play. I'm not a kid born in 90s or 2000s, so I know both what I'm saying.

From the stats, Mo Salah surely. Salah's accomplishment comes as a surprise to many. He went about it in a quickfire, Gestapo way, lol. The league is the same. So, the ground for comparison is fair, if not even skewed against Salah because he plays mostly from the wing.
Considering the number of games remaining in this season, the difference would be miles apart. Sentiments cannot alter facts

Forget the emotional attachment, Sallah is better. Outside the 18 Yard Box, Drogba was often annoying.

Both of you are the confused one here, the comparison is valid.

OP said which African forward will you choose?

Both are forward, one is a top striker(CF) and the other a winger but they are both forward(attackers).

Now, This is OverHyping! undecided
Didier Drogba played when Chelsea was on Fire! The Blues too many Great players around him, Lampard, Malouda, Ballack, Essien, Joe Cole, Arjen Robben, etc..

Salah now is playing for a Great team with a Great Coach!
He has scored Goals against Chelsea, Arsenal, Man Utd, Man City, Etc..His UCL Goalscoring records is improving too! smiley

Don't want to Compare, But now You are denigrating Mohammed Salah in your Arguments! sad

Actually, I always respect Salah.... But, comparing him with Drogba who played at a different time, against different set of defenders is not right sir.

I don't compare footballers from different times... It is disrespectful!!! Facts.

I will never compare Okocha and Kanu against Osimhen or Onuachu! I rather compare them to those who played alongside them or who were elite at that time frame... That makes more sense!!!

So, I have done nothing wrong but correct your errors... Compare Salah to his contemporaries and leave legends alone.

Calling Drogba Overhyped is the real disrespect!!!... That equally makes Ronaldo, Zidane, Messi, etc, Overhyped too... They all played and play among elite footballers. cool
