Chelsea boss Ancelotti admits Drogba out of Moscow trip

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti admits Didier Drogba is unlikely to make their Champions League clash with Spartak Moscow.

A fever has prevented the prolific marksman from training all week and after leaving him out of their Barclays Premier League game against Aston Villa on Saturday, Ancelotti now believes he is unlikely to even travel with the squad to Moscow.

"I don't think he will be able to play on Tuesday because he hasn't trained this week, and he needs to train," said Ancelotti.

"He will be here at Cobham. He'll have to recover from the illness. We can cope because we will have a fit Salomon Kalou over there."
