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.”
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.”
