Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba believes playing in the MLS is tougher than in the Premier League because of the travel demands.
The 37-year-old scored 104 goals in his two stints at Chelsea but left Stamford Bridge in the summer to join Montreal Impact.
“It’s a different challenge [in the MLS],” Drogba told Reuters.
“People think it’s easy to play there. Believe me, it’s more difficult than playing in the Premier League because of the travel.
“You can stay at an airport for three or four hours if you miss your flight, so that is what is really levelling the game.
Drogba has netted 12 goals in 12 appearances since his move to Montreal Impact and the striker believes the MLS will quickly be one of the most “important” leagues in the world.
“There are not a lot of away wins because when the teams arrive they are tired,” said the Ivorian.
“There are also some very good players in the league. It’s a growing league and I think it’s going to be one of the most important and decisive leagues in the world in a few years.”
