Drogba tired of speculation

01 June 2009 07:56
Didier Drogba has reiterated that he is happy at Chelsea and does not want to leave Stamford Bridge. The striker's future has been the subject of speculation for some time and he admits it can be frustrating when transfer talk keeps resurfacing. The 31-year-old maintains that he is committed to seeing out his contract with the Blues and has no concerns about the club letting him go. "I'm a bit tired of speaking about my future because every time I stop people ask me about this. I have one more year here, I'm happy at Chelsea," said Drogba. "I'm not worried about my age or the decision of the club. I'm just worried about being happy in my life and at the moment I'm really happy where I am. "In football anything can happen and we all know that. At the moment this is where I want to be, I've said it before and I will always say that." Hiddink thanksThe arrival of Guus Hiddink in February rejuvenated Drogba following a quiet few months under Luiz Felipe Scolari. And Drogba, who scored in Saturday's FA Cup final to help Chelsea beat Everton, appreciates what the Dutchman did for him. "I'm going to miss him a lot, we are going to miss him. He gave me my chance, what I had been waiting for and I was determined to take it," he said. "Against Everton and in the last few weeks, it has felt like the old Chelsea. "This is really what we love, to fight together and I think we have been doing this all season, even if it has been difficult. "When you play against a team like Everton you have to play your own game and not just concentrate on their physical strength and that's what we did." Uefa punishmentDrogba's return to form has been overshadowed somewhat by his behaviour at the end of Chelsea's UEFA Champions League defeat to Barcelona. He angrily confronted referee Tom Henning Ovrebo, who had turned down a number of penalty appeals, and has since been charged by Uefa. Drogba insists he will accept whatever punishment comes his way, saying: "It's not easy but I think that whatever I did and the decision they take I will accept it because my behaviour was not what Uefa and everyone wants to see in a football stadium. "I will do my suspension and, after that, I will come back stronger."
