Drogba hints at Chelsea stay

Didier Drogba has hinted he wants to stay with Chelsea.

Drogba struggled under Luiz Felipe Scolari and his future at Stamford Bridge appeared uncertain - but since Guus Hiddink's arrival the 31-year-old striker has scored nine goals in 12 games.

On their Champions League clash with Barcelona, Drogba said: "That is the competition I know all Chelsea fans want to win, and it would be special to achieve this. Last season we came so close, the width of a post, and we know it will be difficult - Barcelona are a strong team, but we are confident we can stop them."

After losing the final on penalties to Manchester United last season, Drogba wants to go one better this time around and add to his trophy haul with Chelsea. "Since I have been a Chelsea player there are many memories that I cannot forget," Drogba added. "But I think the best is yet to come. I still want to achieve more with Chelsea and we are working hard on it every day."
