Ivory Coast legend Didier Drogba has paid tribute to former Chelsea coach Ray Wilkins, who passed away on Wednesday, April 4.

Wilkins, a former England captain who represented the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, AC Milan and Rangers in his club career, died at age 61 in hospital following a cardiac arrest earlier in the week.

Wilkins was also well known for his coaching work, particularly in two spells with the Blues, 1998-2000 and 2008-2010.

In the latter time period he worked with Drogba at Stamford Bridge and helped the player enjoy a “resurrection” in his career.

“My condolences to #raywilkins family,” Droga posted on Instagram. “He’s played a big part in my kind of “resurrection” in 2008 and then with my confidence back he helped me to have the best season of my career in 2010.

“Today we @chelseafc @premierleague @manchesterunited @acmilan @psg and all the other teams he played for lost a gentleman.

“Rest in heaven Big fellah as you use to call me.”
