Chelsea legend Didier Drogba is one of Africa’s most decorated players in football history and the Ivorian is also the African player with the joint-most League Cup medals.

He won the League Cup with the Blues in 2004/05, 2006/07 and 2014/15, and scored three goals in League Cup finals, adding to his brilliant record of scoring important goals in finals.

But Drogba is not the only African with three League Cup titles as Durban-born Bruce Grobbelaar and Johannesburg-born Craig Johnston also won the trophy three times during their time at Liverpool. 

The two South Africans won the titles with the Reds in consecutive years between 1982 and 1984.

Drogba, Grobbelaar and Johnston are the most decorated Africans in League Cup history, followed by Yaya Toure, John Obi Mikel and Geremi Njitap, who have all won the League Cup twice.
