Didier Drogba is targeting Champions League glory above everything else this season.
And the Chelsea striker says he is praying injured duo John Terry and Frank Lampard will return and stay fit after Chelsea lost their place at the top of the Premier League.
Drogba, talking to the club’s official magazine, said: “First of all, it is for everybody to be in good health because with health you can try to achieve everything you want.
“Then I want to see everybody at Chelsea celebrating the Champions League at Wembley.”
Now 32, the Ivory Coast international believes he’s playing better than ever.
He added: “I think I’m getting better with age.
“I started very late at the highest level, as I was 25 when I played one season for Marseille and then I came here.
“I feel I’m improving every season. Because I started late, I’m not tired or fed up with playing. I love what I’m doing.”
And he’s clearly enjoying his status as stand-in captain now Terry and Lampard are sidelined.
“I try to motivate and give the example on the pitch – you’ve got to make sure what you say in the dressing room, you apply it on the pitch.
“But it’s the same when I’m not captain. This armband doesn’t change anything for me.”
