Drogba: Chelsea DNA is to fight

Chelsea's DNA is all about fighting, says European champ Didier Drogba.

Drogba was quick to pay tribute to two of his long-time team-mates, Petr Cech and Ashley Cole, who, both last night and earlier in the competition, made glory at the Allianz Arena possible.

"It is in our DNA to fight," he said.

"For me the change of the season was the block Ashley Cole made when we lost in Napoli.

"Nobody has really spoken about it but if Ashley hadn't stopped that shot, it would have been 4-1 and the tie would have been over.

"Petr that night proved himself to be the best goalkeeper in the world.

"All the saves he did today and before, in the other games, took us to where we ended up."
