Chelsea’s talisman Didier Drogba is almost an accomplished football professional, with many individual and club laurels to his credit, but one major title still eludes him, and that is the UEFA Champions League.
During a recent visit to his home country Cote D’Ivoire, he told local reporters his personal objective at Chelsea this season was winning the European premier club title. But over the weekend, the 32-year-old striker revealed to UK’s People it would not matter if he never gets a Champions League title in his entire career. “It would not be a big drama for me if I finished my career without winning the Champions League,” Drogba said. “I really want to pick up the trophy, but nobody will question my ability or achievements if I don’t do it. “George Weah and the Brazilian Ronaldo never ever won the Champions League, but it didn’t stop them being remembered as really great players. “My main achievements and satisfaction will come from knowing where I came from.”
Drogba has not received call-ups off late to play with the Elephants in the ongoing 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying games, prompting local observers to guess the former Marseille phenomenon is gradually winding up his international career after 71 appearances since 2002, scoring a total of 45 goals.
