Looks like Didier Drogba learned a thing or two during his time working with Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

The Chelsea legend is playing MLS football for Montreal Impact and used some of Mourinho's famous mind games to put off an opposing striker before his penalty kick.

Drogba seemed pretty happy with himself after New York Red Bulls' Sacha Kljestan produced a fairly weak penalty, nodding and grinning at the bench.

It was to no avail, though, as Montreal lost the match 2-1, despite Drogba scoring a penalty of his own.
