The Ivorian striker won the Premier League four times and the Champions League once with the Stamford Bridge club.

Didier Drogba, who has announced his retirement from football, proved himself the man for the big occasion during his two spells with Chelsea.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at some of the best moments the Ivory Coast striker enjoyed during his career, which included helping Chelsea win the Premier League four times and the Champions League in 2012, as well as four FA Cup triumphs and three League Cup victories.

2012 Champions League final: Bayern Munich 1 Chelsea 1 (Chelsea win 4-3 on penalties)

Drogba's 88th-minute header took the final into extra-time and, fittingly, it was the Ivorian who struck the winning penalty in the shoot-out.
