Chelsea's dramatic triumph in the final of the Champions League had the hallmarks of a Hollywood blockbuster, according to Munich hero Didier Drogba.

Despite being dominated by Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, Chelsea emerged victorious after a penalty shootout to claim the greatest prize in the club game, and achieve Roman Abramovich's ultimate ambition.

Drogba scored the equaliser for Chelsea in order to take the game into extra time, while it was his penalty that ensured the famous trophy went to a London club for the first time.

The 34-year-old is still riding high after last month's thrilling win, and says the drama of the match would not have looked out of place on the silver screen.

"The final felt like a dream," Drogba told the Times of India. "It was like a Hitchcock movie with so many twists and emotions.

"Lots of things were going through my head while I came up to take the final penalty. I wanted to score for my friend (Petr) Cech, who had saved three penalties in the final."

Drogba's decisive spot kick proved to be his final act as a Chelsea player, and the Ivorian will become a free agent when his contract expires at the end of this month.
