Drogba or Torres dilemma for Di Matteo

Published Add your comment

Roberto Di Matteo was pondering the biggest selection dilemma of his managerial career on Tuesday as he plotted Barcelona's downfall in Chelsea's latest Champions League semi-final.

The interim Blues boss had to decide whether to stick with Didier Drogba for Wednesday night's first leg at Stamford Bridge or recall Fernando Torres for the crunch clash. Di Matteo has given almost equal game time to Drogba and Torres recently and, after the former started Sunday's FA Cup semi-final thrashing of Tottenham, it would appear something has to give in the coming week.

"It's new for me, but there's nothing bad about it," said Drogba. "The most important thing is for the team to win games and to go forward. Of course, I would like to play more, but I think the other players would like to play more as well, so I can't complain."
