Chelsea legend Didier Drogba is still embroiled in a pay dispute at Shanghai Shenhua.

The Daily Mail says Drogba continued playing for the Chinese club despite a board dispute that threatens his lofty salary.

Chinese state media say Shenhua has not been paying its foreign players in full because of the dispute, which has led to speculation that Drogba could leave the club.

But Drogba started in Shanghai's 3-0 win over Liaoning Hongyun on Saturday, scoring one of the goals.
