Drogba expects China stay


Bookmark and Share

Friday 21 September 2012

Didier Drogba has dismissed speculation around his future at Shanghai Shenhua, telling the BBC that he wants to remain in China until at the least the end of his current contract. Drogba moved to the club after leaving Chelsea over the summer.



Rumours were rife recently that financial instability at Shenhua would mean Drogba would have to leave the club, with a number of Premier League teams said to be interested in signing the 34-year-old. The BBC notes that it was reported Shenhua’s financial backer, Zhu Jun, the man responsible for paying the wages of Drogba, threatened to pull out of the club.


Drogba however insists he is happy playing in Shanghai and expects to stay for at least the next two-and-a-half years, the duration of his current contract, and spoke in positive terms at the prospecting of extending his deal. Drogba has netted five times in his seven Shenhua appearances.


The Ivory Coast international’s last contribution as a Chelsea player was to deliver the Champions League, scoring the winning penalty in the shootout against Bayern Munich - at Munich’s own Allianz Arena - having previously scored a late equaliser to take the game to extra time.
