Didier Drogba has insisted he is happy at Chelsea and would like to stay with the Stamford Bridge club after their Champions League triumph.

 

Drogba scored the first goal in the Blues’ dramatic 4-1 win over Napoli after extra time to make it through to the quarter-finals.

 

There has been much speculation regarding the Ivory Coast international’s future at Chelsea, but his latest comments, made after the victory to French broadcaster Canal +, suggest he may be willing to stay on in west London.

 

“A lot of people said it would be my last match in the Champions League – the adventure goes on!” he said.

 

“It was important to win the match. We have a good state of mind. We're trying to do our best. We know we have a lot of things to be forgiven for. It's a beautiful win.

 

“My future at Chelsea? I hope to go on as long as possible. I am not master of my own fate.

 

“I'm happy at Chelsea and I want to go on experiencing such moments and joy. I hope there will be a lot more.”

 

The 34-year-old was outstanding in the victory last night and was crucial to his side’s success in turning around the 3-1 deficit they brought back from the first leg in Naples.

 

It is the third win in a row for new caretaker manager Roberto di Matteo since he was put in temporary charge after the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas 11 days ago.

 

The Blues are now the only English side left in the competition, which has not happened since 2006, the year Arsenal were defeated in the final by Barcelona.
