Drogba, who became the first African to score 100 Premier League goals during his first spell at Chelsea, says Ibrahimovic plays in a similar style as him.

"Ibrahimovic is a player who has changed a lot," he told Canal Football Club.

"He has come to understand that he will have to play for the team in order to help them forward.

"I like his style of play and aggressiveness a lot. We are similar in a lot of areas."

Paris Saint-Germain will be without Lucas Moura, Marquinhos, Yohan Cabaye and Serge Aurier for tie, but Drogba insists they are still a dangerous opponent.

"I do not agree with those who claim Paris Saint-Germain are wounded,” he added.

“Absolutely not. They are preparing themselves for this Champions League tie and they will be ready for it."
