Departing Chelsea hero Drogba: I didn't cry after winning Champions League

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba denies he was crying at the thought of leaving the club after winning the Champions League final.

Goalkeeper Petr Cech claimed he heard his team-mate crying after the final.

And, although he has been prone to emotional outbursts during his time in England, Drogba insists he was doing nothing of the sort.

He added: "I wasn't crying - I was talking to myself. I was crazy for a few minutes. I was saying that I wasn't going to cry, and that God is wonderful.

"I was saying, 'We have been chasing this for eight years, we have had a hard time, and she was difficult, but now I understand why. It is wonderful'."
