Drogba shuns Inter rumours

26 November 2008 09:36
Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has rejected rumours that he has held a meeting with Internazionale officials in readiness for a move to Italy next summer. Reports had suggested that Drogba met with Inter sporting director Marco Branca earlier in the week, but both he and former Blues coach Jose Mourinho, now in charge at the San Siro, have denied that version of events. Drogba told Sky Sports: "I don't have anything to say. "I have always said I have a contract with Chelsea until 2010, no comment about the supposed meeting." Mourinho had earlier stated: "I don't know where Branca was, I was at dinner in Cernobbio. I know absolutely nothing about this story. "I know on the other hand that Drogba is part of the history of Chelsea and, from afar, it seems to me that he is and will be a Chelsea player." However, rumours of a possible move for Drogba have irritated current Chelsea boss, Luiz Felipe Scolari, who also claimed to know nothing of any possible meeting. He added: "I do not sleep with him (Drogba). Where he was last night? I don't know, I am not a policeman for my players. "Ask (chief executive) Peter Kenyon, ask (owner) Roman Abramovich. I don't know, I am only the coach."
