Drogba issues Chelsea warning

Didier Drogba has warned Chelsea that he still feels in great shape as he looks to fire Galatasaray past his former employers in Turkey on Wednesday night, report Sky Sports.

Drogba enjoyed a hugely successful eight years with the West London club, signing off with an emotional spot kick win over Bayern Munich with his last kick for the Blues to claim the 2012 Champions League trophy.

But the Ivory Coast striker, who was bought to the club by Jose Mourinho back in 2004 has warned that while he will always hold Chelsea close to his heart, he will feel no guilt if he can steer his current side past them.

"After the draw Jose texted me to say, 'it's your moment, enjoy it'," said Drogba.

"People know how much I love the club and the fans. I will still be happy to score because I also want to qualify for the next round. But you have to show respect.”

The veteran forward turns 36 next month but feels he can still make a significant impact in Istanbul.

Drogba added: “It's impossible to stop time but it's possible, with your intelligence on the pitch and your experience, to play at a high level even for two or three more years.

“It also depends on the desire to play. I feel young. I want to play even when it's a friendly. I still feel like a kid running after the ball. I want to play as much as I can.”
