Didier Drogba has admitted he is still coming to terms with life after Jose Mourinho and admitted he cried when he heard of the Portuguese tactician's Chelsea exit.

"I have no problems in saying that I cried when I heard the news," Drogba told the Daily Star on Sunday.

"I owe him practically everything. I felt a pain like that of losing a father.

"I cried and I've cried again since. I and my team-mates love Chelsea. We want the club to stay big but I cannot speak about the future."
