Ivory Coast international Didier Drogba has hinted that he may leave Chelsea after admitting to becoming frustrated at Stamford Bridge. The 29-year-old has been the Premiership's top scorer this term but could be heading for a new challenge after spending three seasons with the Blues. He told The Daily Express: "I am still at Chelsea. I have signed a new contract but I was very successful in France and now I am successful in England. "I love challenges and maybe I will look for a new challenge somewhere else in another country. "Personally, it has been a great season for me. I had more than a month off after the World Cup and I was finally able to rest properly. I needed it. "I've reached my objectives such as finishing as top goalscorer and winning the respect of the Premiership. "But it has been a frustrating season, full of disappointments. The Premiership, the Champions League - losing in those competitions hurt us a lot." Drogba moved to Stamford Bridge from Marseille in 2004 and has scored 64 goals in 141 appearances for the club.
