Benin striker Steve Mounie has revealed that he will try to follow in the footsteps of Ivorian Didier Drogba following his strong start to life at Huddersfield Town.

The 22-year-old striker, who was Huddersfield’s club-record signing when he arrived from Montpellier, has revealed that Chelsea legend Drogba was a hero of his during his youth days.

“I watched him, he was a top player,” the Benin international told Sky Sports.

“Didier Drogba was one of the best I used to watch.

“He was a great player and an example for me in the Premier League. I try to follow his steps.

“But I’m Steve Mounie and I try as well to make my history, my proper history.”

Mounie has already scored two Premier League goals for Huddersfield and will look to add to his tally when they face Leicester City on Saturday.

South African side Kaizer Chiefs have responded to media speculations linking the club with players from other teams.

Amakhosi recently signed Chicken Inn defender Teenage Hadebe, former Maritzburg United wing-back Philani Zulu and former Cape Town City winger Bhongolethu Jayiya.

The Soweto giants have been busy preparing for the 2017 Bokone Bophirima Maize Cup and 2017/18 Premier Soccer League (PSL) campaign.

Bobby Motaung, the Chiefs football manager, says that they will follow the correct procedure before they make more signings.

“We have seen names bandied around in the media,” Motaung told the club’s official website.

“We would like to reiterate that if there are players that we are interested in to sign we will follow the correct procedure.

“We do not want to destabilise other clubs and we also don’t want to cause confusion to our supporters,” he continued.

“Any player movement will be announced via our official media platforms.”

Chiefs are scheduled to face Botswana giants Township Rollers in the Maize Cup semi-finals, and the winner will face Free State Stars or Platinum Stars in the final.

All matches will take place at the James Motlatsi Stadium in Orkney, South Africa on Saturday, 15 July 2017.
