Man Utd boss Ferguson: Thanks Chelsea - you gaffed letting Drogba leave

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has questioned how Chelsea will handle next season without Didier Drogba.

In the first swipe of pre-season, the Manchester United boss admits he was stunned to hear the Ivory Coast hitman, 34, had quit ­Stamford Bridge for Chinese outfit Shanghai Shenhua.

Fergie said: “It is a big boost for us that he’s leaving. Drogba won the Champions League against Bayern for Chelsea with that header – only he could have done that.”
