Tight Chelsea squad can overcome missing players - Drogba

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba believes the closeness of the players in the squad can help the team make up for four key players who will miss the Champions League final next month.

The Blues will be without captain John Terry as well as Ramires, Branislav Ivanovic and Raul Meireles, who are all suspended, when they meet Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena on May 19 but Drogba says that recent experiences will help the players overcome those absences.

"They are all big players to miss. I feel sorry for John, he is our captain and we will miss him badly," he told the Times of India.

"The same is true for the other players - like Ramires, Ivanovic and Meireles. But others will come in and we will play as a team. We have come through a lot together."
