Drogba says Chelsea have 'know-how' to win Champions League

Galatasaray striker Didier Drogba feels former club Chelsea can win the Champions League this season.

Drogba backed Samuel Eto'o and Fernando Torres - both on target in a 3-1 aggregate win against the Turks - and said the know-how of Jose Mourinho, Petr Cech, John Terry and Frank Lampard will make the difference.

"To go three or four years without winning it is too much for a big club like Chelsea," said Drogba. "It will be great if they can go on and do it. Chelsea have a big chance, which is good.

"They know how to handle this situation. They know how to win important games. When I was there, if we were top of the league at this stage of the season, we never let it go.

"So the players who were there then will be very important if Chelsea are to win it this season."
