Chelsea striker Drogba unhappy playing upfront alone

Chelsea icon Didier Drogba admits he doesn't enjoy playing upfront on his own.

Ahead of today's FA Cup final, the Ivory Coast striker has scored in seven of his nine appearances at Wembley.

Drogba said: "It's not a role I really enjoy, because playing one against two defenders is very difficult.

"Some people don't understand that and sometimes I get criticism. That's football.

"I'd prefer to play with two strikers up there, so it's one on one with the defenders. That's a very different game for me."
