Chelsea legend Didier Drogba is happy to sit back in reserve in his second showing for the club, reports talkSPORT.
The Champions League-winning striker started for the Blues in their narrow 1-0 victory over west London rivals QPR this past weekend.
It was only Drogba’s fourth start for Chelsea since signing back for the club last summer.He’s played a lowly total of 511 minutes so far this season in Premier League - despite scoring three goals, however the Ivorian goalscorer is content with being a back up: “I was trying to give my best”, speaking after the win on Sunday.
“I haven’t played for a long time but I am always there for the team and I am very happy.
“We have a good lead again - we have kept our distance from Arsenal. We have been top of the league since the beginning and now we are waiting for the Manchester United game.
“We are playing at home so we are going to do everything to win it. These are big games we have to win if we want to be champions.”
PLANS TO CARRY ON
The striker also stated his intentions to carry on playing next year when speaking after the QPR game.
Chelsea’s next fixture is at home to Manchester United this Saturday and, with Diego Costa sidelined until the beginning of May, Drogba could be set to make his fifth appearance from the start.
