COVENTRY: Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink paid tribute to Didier Drogba after a 2-0 victory away to Coventry City saw the Londoners into the semifinals of the FA Cup.
Victory meant the Dutchman, who has said several times he will leave Chelsea at the end of the season to concentrate solely on his job as Russia manager, extended his perfect record in charge of the London club to five wins out five.
This win, Chelsea's sixth in a row, was set up in the 15th minute when Drogba outmuscled home defender Ben Turner before shooting home from a narrow angle.
Drogba's goal was the rejuvenated Cote d'Ivoire striker's sixth of the season.
"He's dangerous and I think he's very good for the team as well. He's also making little mistakes," Hiddink said. "He can still improve and he's working outside normal training sessions. He likes to do that and it is paying off."
