Chelsea’s Drogba: I won’t play for Premiership rival

He said: “It is out of the question that I could play for another English club.

“I would like to spend many years here while continuing to play at my best level. It was not for nothing I decided to extend my contract with Chelsea.

“It is more than two years that I have worked like a madman for the club and I still want to win trophies with them.

“In any case, this team can go very far. Its room for progress is enormous. It is built to win trophies.”
