Chelsea striker Drogba not desperate to win Champions League

Chelsea ace Didier Drogba says the Champions League isn't a burning ambition.

Drogba, who missed Chelsea's victories over MSK Zilina and his old club Marseille earlier this season ­because of suspension, ­returns to the side for the trip to Spartak Moscow on Tuesday week.

"It would not be a big drama for me if I finished my career without winning the Champions League," said the 32-year-old, capped 67 times by the Ivory Coast.

"I really want to pick up the trophy but nobody will question my ability or achievements if I don't do it.

"George Weah and the Brazilian Ronaldo never ever won the Champions League, but it didn't stop them being ­remembered as really great players.

"My main achievements and ­satisfaction will come from ­knowing where I came from.

"If you had told me when I was 15 how far I would go I would have said you were crazy."
