Drogba expects Terry stay

Didier Drogba scored in Chelsea's 2-0 victory over Inter Milan and declared captain John Terry was set to turn down Manchester City and stay with the Blues.

The Ivorian made his first pre-season appearance at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, while Terry played the full 90 minutes and Drogba belives the England skipper is going nowhere.

"He's our captain and we need him and we know he's going to stay with us and win more trophies," Drogba told ESPN.

Of his side coming face to face with Mourinho, Drogba said: "It's always nice to see him, he was a big part of Chelsea's success and now we're moving on.

"We have a new manager now and we're all happy for him because he won his second game out of two, so it's all good.

"We're working hard, this is only the start and we want to be ready for the start of the season."

Goals from Drogba in the 11th minute and a Frank Lampard penalty just after half-time gave Chelsea the victory over the Italian champions.

The impressive nature of the Blues' performance more than the scoreline, however, will have delighted new head coach Ancelotti, especially coming so soon into the ex AC Milan chief's first pre-season campaign and against his former cross-city rivals.
