Montreal Impact star Didier Drogba praised his team-mates after he scored a hat-trick in Saturday’s demolition of MLS rivals Philadelphia Union.

Drogba, 38, turned back the clock with three goals to lead the Impact to a 5-1 rout of the Union in Montreal.

The former Chelsea striker and Ivory Coast captain scored twice in the first half and completed his second MLS hat-trick seven minutes after the interval.

Speaking to reporters afterwards, Drogba – who is set to face Premier League outfit Arsenal in Thursday’s All-Star match – said: “This was a special night. Our key players came out strong at the right time.

“The shape of the team was great, and we played well going forward with the ball. We’re here to win games, and also to please our crowd.”

Drogba added: “It’s been a long time since we dominated the ball like that.

“I didn’t have to go to the [defensive] side of the field — today I was only focused on scoring.”

Drogba improved his season tally to eight league goals, which he dedicated to his late aunty and family.
