Chelsea ace Drogba: I deserve Champions League second chance

Chelsea ace Didier Drogba wants Champions League glory after his 2008 Moscow heartbreak.

Drogba would love to bow out as a European champion after being sent off in the 2008 final for slapping Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic.

He said: "I think everyone in life deserves a second chance and I hope that this will be mine.

"I faced a lot of criticism after I was sent off in Moscow but it helped me to grow up a little bit.

"I had even more criticism after we beat Barcelona in the first leg.

"But this is not about revenge. This is our chance and it's up to us to take it and bring the cup back to Stamford Bridge."
