Chelsea striker, Didier Drogba, has said that the club will not be affected by the transfer ban this season and will canter to glory in both the Premier League and Champions League. Chelsea have looked the most complete team in England so far this season and Drogba has played a large part in this early season form.
He is the sort of player that everyone loves to criticise but so far in the games Chelsea have played, he has looked very hard working and seems determined to help his side get a great deal of success this year.
He said: “I don’t mind which, but we have to win one. Why can’t we win both [the Premier League and Champions League]? People are always talking about the day I said I wanted to go from here, but I’ve said I’m happy here many times and I am.”
“I have my plan and I’ll stick to it, which is the most important thing – I know what I want to achieve with Chelsea. I’m here to stay and I want more success. Dropping in and connecting midfield and attack like I do when I play with a strike partner is how I played with Marseille before I came to England.”
“And the way I played with Damien Duff and Arjen Robben in my first two seasons here – meeting crosses and attacking balls – is how I had played with Guingamp before I moved to Marseille. It’s true that I love to receive the ball into feet to be given the chance to try and create something, and to pass to my team-mates. I think it makes me more unpredictable than in the other way because I can use my balance and my strength to help.”
It would take a very brave betting man to actually place money against Chelsea this season. So far Manchester United have been way off the pace and the only team that has kept up with Chelsea, Manchester City, will fall away at some point as sides will eevntually find a way to beat them.
However, Chelsea are a different story, Carlo Ancelotti seems to have a very good tactical brain and the ability to grind out wins from bad performances. Chelsea have also picked up the habit of scoring in the last minute of a game which also helps out from time to time.
