Barak ‘thought about Drogba’

Antonin Barak admits the winner he scored against Parma was a similar goal to the one netted by Didier Drogba in the 2012 Champions League final.

“It’s the first thing I thought about,” Barak told Sky Sport when pundits compared his goal to the one the Ivorian striker scored against Bayern Munich in the 2012 Champions League final.

“I’d like to score a goal in a Champions League final, I hope I can reach certain targets and keep improving,” the former Udinese man claimed after Hellas' 2-1 win over Parma.

The 26-year-old has now five goals in 19 Serie A appearances.

“It’s a nice season for me, we are all doing well,” he continued.

“I am happy when the team do well and I’m happy for how we are training during the week. We have a nice group, that’s our strength.

“The coach gives a lot of freedom in the middle of the pitch and up front, we feel football, we feel the moment and we try to have fun and score goals.”
