Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has revealed he is determined to put the disappointment of his last Champions League final appearance behind him when the Blues take on Bayern Munich in this year’s showpiece, Press Association has reported.

Drogba was sent off when Chelsea played Manchester United in Moscow in 2009 but even without the Ivory Coast international, the Stamford Bridge side were a John Terry penalty away from winning a first European Cup. As it was, the Chelsea captain slipped as he took a crucial kick in the penalty shootout and United were crowned the winners.

But with a second Champions League final just days away now, Drogba has spoken of what it would mean to him to receive a winner’s medal. He said: “I've got a lot of disappointments but I've also got a lot of great moments in finals so I'm going to try to make sure that, for my team-mates, this one is a great one.

PA adds that Drogba had reason to feel particularly at fault for Chelsea’s defeat to Manchester United as if he had been on the field at the time of the spot kicks, he and not Terry would have taken Chelsea’s last penalty.
