Didier Drogba has admitted he fell into the trap of thinking Chelsea would be back in the Champions League final a year after losing to Manchester United.
But he is under no illusions that Saturday's showdown with Bayern Munich is almost certain to be his last shot at European glory and one he is desperate to take. The Allianz Arena clash is set to bring down the curtain on Drogba's glittering career at Stamford Bridge, with the striker out of contract at the end of the season.
Admitting the clash was "one of the biggest games" of his career, Drogba said: "I've played a lot with Chelsea but this one is going to be special because it's only the second time we have reached the Champions League final. So we are going to do everything to go there and be ready to play against this German team."
