Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has told reporters he is planning on staying at the club for the long haul, despite Fernando Torres being the new golden boy at Stanford Bridge.

Drogba has only played a full 90 minutes for Chelsea twice since mid February. While the striker has been injured, his pairing with Torres up front has failed to result in the goals Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti was hoping for.


Rumours have since surfaced that Drogba is planning on heading to a club in the summer that will allow him to be the number one striker again, but the 33 year old insists he’s staying put at Stanford Bridge.

“There will always be talk about my future,” said Drogba. “I keep saying it, I'm here and I'm giving everything and it's normal that the club wants to buy another striker because we are ambitious and we want to win the Champions League.

“And it's normal for us to bring a player like him [Torres]. So I just want to say I'm here and I'm really happy because the fans know that my commitment for the team is 100 per cent and that's the most important thing.”

Drogba insists he is not unhappy about not being the first choice for Chelsea’s striker any more.
