Drogba pledges "100% commitment" to Chelsea

"I am a Chelsea player and will be 100 per cent committed and supportive to my manager, my team-mates and the club," he said in a statement released by Chelsea.

"I will not be discussing my future any further until I meet privately with the club at the end of the season."

Chelsea manager Avram Grant said on Friday he was keen to speak to the player in private to quell any further dressing-room unrest.

"I can't tell you something because I read it in the paper. I need to discuss it with him," Grant said.

"I have read many things that were not true about problems in the dressing-room.

"Now you know there was no problem in the dressing-room until now and I hope it will continue like that.

"This attitude has brought us good results in a very difficult time.

"I am very happy with the atmosphere and the attitude of the players until now and I am sure that it will continue."
