Chelsea striker Didier Drogba insists he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge as long as the club want him.

The controversial forward has endured a mixed season and has consistently been linked with a move to Inter Milan to join up again with former coach Jose Mourinho. However, Drogba claims he hopes to continue firing Chelsea to more success.

"I believe the future of Chelsea will be splendid because we have created something for which now many want to come to Chelsea," he told Sky Italia. "They know that when they come here every year they have to fight to win trophies."

He added: "This club was already historical but it will become even more so.

"I am very proud to be part of all of it and I want to stay here as long as they want me."

Drogba was plagued by injuries and a lack of form in the first half of the campaign, while he was also overlooked by then coach Luiz Felipe Scolari in favour of Nicolas Anelka.

Since Guus Hiddink replaced Scolari Drogba has enjoyed a rejuvenation of sorts, but he insists he has nothing against his former coach.

"Sometimes things don't go how you want them to," he added.

"I can't be angry with him because it was a choice and the manager's choices should be respected.

"A coach has 22 players at his disposition. he has to make decisions and I think that his weren't bad because Anelka was scoring. I couldn't say anything, I had to only wait my turn."
