Drogba?

Single handily won Chelsea the champions league. With his notoriously infamous theatrics during the semi-final against Barca.

Remember?

I meant technical as in good passing , good control , awareness etc. As most of the players just have a more physical side , with pace and strength esp in acon, which is why is isn't very good to watch . One good technical player atm would be essien , I have my doubts to yaya toure technically

Toure is better than Essien at passing, shooting and dribbling. One thing that makes Toure a cut above the rest of the players like him is that he combines his physicality with exceptional technique.

I'm guessing the OP means sub-saharan Afrian player and probably from an argument that players from the region aren't technically gifted at all and are only superior at the physical part of the game. But this is really nothing other than sterotypical myopia of the black guy been hench and raw. There are inumerate amount of technical gifted players from the region both past and present- watch the ongoning Nations cup to see examples of this on show.

Heck JJ Okocha taught Ronaldinho all he knew

Nope I meant anywhere in the world , I agree with the slight stereotype , however it all comes from what I see on the football pitch . They might be able to pass a ball decently , however on a world class level , I struggle to name players who are technically superior . Also from what I see only regarding bpl league , most black players , tend to play in positions which tend to need mainly speed and power as a core base , such as wingers , full backs , strikers

If you want some African Black people,
Samuel Eto'o
Emmanuel Adebayor
Thierry Henry
Henry is not African. He's European.

Here's a better question.

Why are there no black Number 10's?

It's like in American football.

Why are there no black Quarterbacks?

Dang, I knew he was French but I thought he was of African descent. I think also Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck are two technically superb players who will become international class if not world class.
