Chelsea veteran rejects 'impossible' German giants transfer

Published Add your comment

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has played down talk of a possible move away from Stamford Bridge.

The Ivorian striker was linked with both Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan this summer, with Bayern Munich most recently linked with a move for the former Marseille star.

However, the 33-year-old has effectively ruled out a move away from Chelsea, stating it would be difficult to start again at a new club.

"I believe the rumours were unnecessary," said Drogba on the subject of leaving west London.

"At my age, it's next to impossible to start again at a new club."

Drogba has only recently recovered from an injury in west London, coming off the bench to score for Chelsea in a 4-1 win over Swansea City last weekend.


After missing out on an appearance against Valencia in the Champions League, the forward is again expected to come for the fore in the absence of Fernando Torres, who will miss the next three Barclays Premier League matches for Chelsea after picking up a red card against the Swans.

His first start for Andre Villas-Boas' side since the injury is set to come against Bolton, before clashes against Everton (twice), Genk QPR and Arsenal complete a busy October for Chelsea.
