Didier Drogba maintains next season will see the best of Fernando Torres at Chelsea as the Ivory Coast striker prepares for life after Stamford Bridge.

The 34-year-old announced he was leaving the club whom he helped win the Champions League in Munich to bring the curtain down on a trophy-laden spell in west London. Spain striker Torres may feel he has had to play second fiddle to Drogba since his £50m move from Liverpool 18 months ago, but the veteran is in no doubt who will be the new goal king of Stamford Bridge.

"It has been difficult for him, but he has showed he is the man. Next season is going to be his season and I will try to speak to him," said Drogba. "We have a good relationship. We don't understand why we didn't play together more, but that's the past. Torres is the future."
