Current season is toughest ever, Drogba reveals

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba says the current campaign in West London is the 'hardest' he has ever experienced during his Blues career, Sky Sports reports.

Andre Villas-Boas is under pressure at Stamford Bridge with reports of training ground bust-ups and the Chelsea boss losing the dressing room. On the field, the Blues have yet to hit top form and struggled to a 1-1 draw with Championship side Birmingham City on Saturday. Drogba returned from the African Cup of Nations for that game and came on at half-time to replace out-of-form striker Fernando Torres.

The Ivorian international has been linked with a move away from Chelsea and Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua, who have recently signed former Chelsea forward Nicolas Anelka, are interested. Drogba has spoken about his future and and wants to stay at Chelsea beyond his contract to help change the fortunes of the club.

Drogba said: 'It is the hardest season I've known here. The players and fans are used to being in the first two or three but this is different. You know how it is when you come with a lot of ambition and it doesn't go the way you want, it's difficult. It's not easy for him (Villas-Boas) but he's not the only one who is responsible, we all are.'
