He however added that the Nigerian striker needs to be a bit more professional. Mourinho said;
“And if you want me to compare him with Drogba, I would say, the level is there but Drogba would never dive.
“If Victor can change that in his game, he is okay. If only I am at a club with a lot of money, I’ll buy him.
“I told him, you scored an amazing goal, but you didn’t need to dive all the time. That’s what I told him. That’s what I think.
