Ancelotti sees Drogba as Chelsea`s unstoppable attacking force
London: Coach Carlo Ancelotti reckons Didier Drogba can be the unstoppable attacking force in his Chelsea team.
The Italian said: "Drogba is a very important player for us - he`s irreplaceable, as no other striker in the world can do the same job. I`ve spoken with Drogba and know very well what he wants.”
"I believe in Drogba and told him this and he told me he`s happy to stay," he was quoted as saying.
There has been interest in the 30-year-old Ivory Coast striker from both Inter and AC Milan but Drogba has decided he does not want to leave Chelsea.
He is expected to sign a two-year extension to his current deal when the players return from their American tour and his salary will rise to 102,000 pounds a week.
