Drogba: Time to take responsibility

Published Add your comment

Didier Drogba stopped short of telling Chelsea to "man up" ahead of their Champions League clash at Napoli but called on his team-mates to take responsibility for getting their season back on track.

It is almost deja vu for the Blues, a year on from last season's Champions League last 16 first leg at FC Copenhagen when they were in another mid-season malaise. That saw captain John Terry call on his team-mates to "man up", which they did during a 2-0 win in Denmark.

Twelve months on and the build-up to another opening knockout phase match has been dominated by talk of crisis at Stamford Bridge. Drogba said: "I think we are all responsible for the results. Chelsea Football Club is responsible for the results, and I think we all have to play our game. The players have to play their game."
