Chelsea striker Didier Drogba says Manchester United deserved to win the Community Shield.
But Drogba believes Manchester United would not have found it so easy if the Double winners had not had so many players at the World Cup.
The Ivory Coast hitman said: "We didn't play well. We've been working hard in training, trying to get fit, but we did not have the intensity.
"It's very hard to get fit in such a short space of time after the World Cup.
"I only came back 10 days ago and we have had a lot of players coming back late, but we have to find a solution."
