Chelsea ace Drogba desperate to face former club Marseille

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is desperate to see action against former club Olympique Marseille.

Chelsea play Marseille on Tuesday in the UEFA Champions League, and Drogba is upset at missing the chance to line up against his former club as he is suspended.

But he is desperate to make the second leg in France, saying: "I hope I don't miss the return match as the Velodrome has an exceptional atmosphere.

"I did not think I would miss this game, but that is a lesson in life.

"I have already warned my team-mates about the Stade Velodrone, I said forget about Stamford Bridge, Old Trafford, St James' Park - the Velodrome is unique."
