Drogba uncertain over long-term future

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has hinted that he may not end his career at Stamford Bridge, claiming "anything can happen".

Drogba, who has two-years left on his current deal, has played over 250 games for the Blues since moving from Marseille in 2004 and previously stated he would end his career with the champions.

But the 32-year-old admits that things could change, and he told Canal Plus: "When I signed a new contract at Chelsea, I always said I wanted to finish my career here.

"But I am well placed to say that anything can happen.

"When I was at Marseille I said I would finish my career there but, one week later, everything changed."

Chelsea play Marseille on Tuesday in the Champions League, and Drogba is upset at missing the chance to line-up against his former club as he is suspended.

But he is desperate to make the second leg in France, adding; "I hope I don’t miss the return match as the Velodrome has an exceptional atmosphere.

"I did not think I would miss this game, but that is a lesson in life.

"I have already warned my team-mates about the Stade Velodrone, I said forget about Stamford Bridge, Old Trafford, St James’ Park – the Velodrome is unique."
