Drogba wants to win to forget Moscow misery

Chelsea will now face Juventus in the last-16 of the Champions League and the first-leg match will be played at Stamford Bridge tomorrow.

The Blues striker was sent off in last year’s final against Manchester United that Chelsea lost.

Drogba was dismissed for slapping United defender Nemanja Vidic in the game.

He told The Sun: “My desire is greater than ever to win it. We lost two semi-finals and a final.

“It has been a difficult competition for us. Moscow is very difficult to forget, I still think about it.

“The saddest part for me is the fans. They deserve to win the Champions League and this year we have to play the same way to get to the final but this time bring the trophy back to the Bridge.

“I would love to travel back in time and not be sent off in Moscow. If I was on the pitch I would have taken a penalty.

“I love taking penalties but sometimes you have to accept this is life.”
