Drogba: There is more to come

Published Add your comment

Didier Drogba claimed he still had at least two years left to give at the highest level after rescuing Chelsea from the threat of Champions League elimination.

Drogba was at his bulldozing best with two goals in the Blues' 3-0 win over Valencia on Tuesday night, which ensured they avoided crashing out of the competition before Christmas for the first time ever. The 33-year-old's current deal expires in the summer and he is free to sign a pre-contract with a rival club in less than a month's time.

He has already pledged not to walk away in January amid reports he will not budge in his quest for a two-year extension, despite only one year being offered. When asked if he still had a couple of years left in him among the elite, Drogba said: "I hope so."
