Ivory Coast striker Drogba went under the knife on Saturday to correct an ongoing knee injury with the club claiming the operation went without mishap. Grant, speaking a 2-0 victory over Sunderland, refused to give a date for his comeback but suggested he may be on club duty in January - and not at the African Nations Cup.
He said: "Are we losing him to the African Nations Cup? We want him to be well. If his knee is okay and he plays in the competition then good, but if he can also play for Chelsea then that is also good. What´s important now is that he feels good."
