Didier Drogba offers comforting words to Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku after Super Cup penalty miss

Didier Drogba has done his best to lift the spirits of Romelu Lukaku, after the Chelsea striker missed a crucial penalty in their Super Cup defeat to Bayern Munich.

With the penalty shoot-out poised at 5-4 to the Germans, Lukaku stepped up for the Blues’ last spot-kick, but his tame effort was comfortably saved by Manuel Neuer to hand Bayern their first silverware of the season.

The 20-year-old Belgian international, who joined Chelsea in 2011, was playing in his first final for the club and was visibly distraught at the miss.

But former Chelsea striker Drogba, who himself scored the winning penalty against Bayern Munich in last year’s Champions League final, has offered some wise words to Lukaku via Instagram, showing despite leaving the club a year ago, his heart is still at Stamford Bridge.
