Chelsea boss Ancelotti insists Drogba can play with Torres

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is coy over Didier Drogba's place in his future plans. Ancelotti insists Fernando Torres' arrival has not relegated Drogba to a bit-part role.

Ancelotti said: "They can play together without problem. We're working on that in training.

"They don't have a problem playing with each other."

The Italian refused to be drawn on speculation about Drogba's Stamford Bridge future and once again backed the misfiring Torres to come good.

"Obviously, for a striker it's important to score," he said of the latter, who once again failed to find the net in Copenhagen.

"But, above all in the last game, he played very well.

"He had four opportunities to score and was denied by the goalkeeper and he moved very well for the team.

"He'd have preferred to score, but he will."
