'Drogba simply the best' - Chelsea-Galatasaray in tweets with Roberto Di Matteo

The former Chelsea boss watched the Blues in Champions League action against Galatasaray on Tuesday evening, while talking to Twitter as part of Heineken's 'Share The Sofa' event
First-half goals from Samuel Eto'o and Gary Cahill ensured there was no fairytale return to Stamford Bridge for Didier Drogba, as Chelsea eased past Galatasaray and into the Champions League quarter-finals.

Former Blues coach Roberto Di Matteo tweeted his thoughts on the game for Heineken as part of their '#ShareTheSofa' night, but the man he described as 'the best striker of the past 10 years' could not stop the 2012 European champions from advancing to the last eight.

Goal compiled a list of our favourite tweets from the Italian during and after the game...

"Eto'o is on fire tonight!"

"Goal number 2 - couldn't have come at a better time. A real killer blow. Game over after 45 minutes?"
