Chelsea ace Drogba admits fearing for his life after Ruddy clash

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba admits he feared for his life after his horror collision with Norwich City goalkeeper John Ruddy.

Drogba is out for almost eight minutes.

He suffered concussion and a perforated eardrum but hopes to come back at home to Swansea today.

But Drogba believes he is fortunate to still be around.

He told The Sun: "When I see those images again it's scary. I was lucky, definitely.

"Playing football is important for me but being alive and being with my kids and having my family happy that I'm still here is the most important thing."
