Didier Drogba really, really, really wants to leave Chelsea

It seems Didier Drogba is still not a happy bunny at Stamford Bridge. The Ivorian stepped out of line following the departure of Jose Mourinho in September to reveal he wasn’t happy with life at Chelsea after the ‘Special One’ had left the club. Although the striker issued an apology shortly thereafter, The Times report that Drogba is still seeking pastures new for about the 19th time in two seasons.

“It comes from me, I said what I am thinking, that I wanted to leave,” Drogba said. “Mourinho’s departure didn’t help. To the contrary, it made my desire to leave even bigger. I am not going to speak about my next club and my major objective is the ACN [African Cup of Nations] and winning all the interests we have to win when I’ll return for Chelsea.”

Considering that Drogba has been a one man wrecking crew the last two years, almost single handedly winning a title and then keeping the London club within touching distance of Manchester United last season – will his loss be significant or have the Blues used his absence to learn to play without their battering ram?
