Didier Drogba has played down the importance of adding winning the Champions League to his personal list of honours stating that:
‘It would not be a big drama for me if I finished my career without winning the Champions League’.
The Ivory Coast star has enjoyed plenty of success domestically during his time with Chelsea in during which he has lifted the Premiership trophy three times, but he is yet to experience Champions League glory.
Chelsea have came close on a number of occasions during the Abramovich era to winning the Champions League and the Russian owner is understood to be desperate to get his hands on the trophy.
Drogba explains that he is still intent on winning the trophy, though it is not the be all and end all for him:
‘I really want to pick up the trophy, but nobody will question my ability or achievements if I don’t do it. George Weah and the Brazilian Ronaldo never ever won the Champions League, and they were great players.’
Chelsea have endured a plenty of Champions League heartache over the last few years and some have claimed that Roman Abramovich is ‘obsessed’ with its aquisition.
Is Drogba’s perspecitve is perhaps a healthy way of looking at things, though the Chelsea fans hunger for the Champions League trophy is unlikely be diminished.
