Jose Mourinho and Didier Drogba meet again when Galatasaray face Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu on Wednesday night, with the coach insisting that the pair have formed a bond that goes deeper than football. "I don't say Didier was the greatest player I have worked with because I have had so many great players," Mourinho said. "But he was a great player, a great friend and somebody who will be part of my life forever. He would say the exact same about me. We created the kind of emotional links that are more than football."
