VIDEO: Didier Drogba perfects the art of the hat-trick with first MLS goals
It turns out you can teach an old Drog new tricks.
37-year-old Didier Drogba looked every bit the wily veteran as he showed MLS what he's capable of with a good old fashioned 'perfect' hat-trick on his first start for Montreal Impact's 4-3 victory over Chicago Fire last night.
Drogba's first was the pick of the bunch as he deftly controlled a cross, turned his man and toe-poked the ball home with his favoured right foot.
The former Chelsea striker had to wait over half an hour for his second which arrived when he lifted the ball over Sean Johnson in the Chicago goal which drew the Impact level.
The game was won and 'perfect' hat-trick completed when Drogba capitalised on some shocking goalkeeping to tower over his centre-back and head home into a virtually empty net.
There are unconfirmed reports that the performance has prompted a €110 million bid from Ed Woodward.
