Di Matteo and Drogba coy on future

Next Story

Penalty shoot-out hero Didier Drogba and manager Roberto Di Matteo were united in refusing to allow talk of their own futures invade the greatest night in Chelsea history after the club's Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich.

Drogba scored the decisive kick, with what could prove to be his last contribution for the club as his contract is due to expire in the summer. He said: "This is a great day for the club. There are not enough words to describe how I feel. The most important thing is not my future. The most important thing is what we have achieved."

Di Matteo's future is equally uncertain despite rescuing Chelsea from meltdown following Andre Villas-Boas' dismissal in February. "I feel great," he said. "But I need a holiday because these last three months have been very challenging. At this moment, whatever the future holds for me is irrelevant."
