Chelsea legend Drogba proud to deliver Champions League to Abramovich

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba was thrilled to deliver the Champions League trophy to Roman Abramovich last season.

The Shanghai Shenhua striker explained why he took the trophy straight to owner Abramovich when he got his hands on the cup.

Drogba revealed to The Sun: "We had a few conversations every year.

"On this year he said 'are we going to win the Champions League or not?' I said I didn't know, then a week before the final we spoke and I said this time it was our time."

Drogba famously scored the equaliser against Bayern Munich then conceded a penalty that Petr Cech saved from Arjen Robben.

The two Chelsea heroes led the celebrations at the Allianz Arena after the amazing shoot-out win.

He said: "I wanted to run directly to the boys but Petr was the guy that saved my night.

"I had to go to him, I said thank you and we said 'we did it'. Then black out.

"People were jumping on us and it was a great moment, a great feeling."
