Chelsea striker Didier Drogba insists he is happy with life at Stamford Bridge.

The 33-year-old Ivorian has rubbished reports he will walk out on the Blues, despite having recently fallen down the pecking order after the January arrival of Fernando Torres.

"It's a new situation," he said. "It wasn't easy the first week but that's normal. Now I know that we're doing this for the best of the team.

"The team is more competitive. Everybody talks a lot about my future but I'm enjoying it and I'm happy to be here."


A number of niggling injuries have hampered Drogba’s season, and he is struggling for form having not scored for Chelsea since the 24 January.

However, after recovering from a hip injury picked up in the recent Barclays Premier League game against Blackpool, Drogba returned to the starting line-up in Wednesday’s Champions League 0-0 draw at home to Copenhagen.

After the game Drogba explained that he had spoken to Blues manager Carlo Ancelotti about his situation, and is convinced he will be given enough opportunities to play in the Chelsea first-team.

"The communication is important. The communication is what makes a player feel valuable in every situation.

"The season is not finished yet. It will be very interesting to see what happens in May. Then we can sit and speak about it."
