Drogba has no problem with Lampard being Chelsea No1 penalty taker

Didier Drogba has no qualms with Chelsea teammate Frank Lampard being their designated penalty taker.

Drogba is infamous for his on-field strops, but accepts manager Carlo Ancelotti's choice.

Drogba, with four goals ­already this season, said: "I like taking penalties because it's a big responsibility.

"But it's clear Lamps is the first one to take penalties for us and only if he is not on the pitch do I take them.

"I took the one against Stoke ­because he wasn't on the pitch.

"Frank has scored so many penalties for Chelsea.

"That's why he will take the next one too."
