Drogba still wants Chelsea future

Didier Drogba has vowed to stay at Chelsea for "as long as possible", although the Ivorian striker conceded "I am not master of my destiny".

• Jose: I'd love to face Chelsea

With negotiations on extending his current deal, which expires at the end of the season, reaching an impasse, the 34-year-old is being heavily linked with a big-money move to China in the summer.

However, Drogba underlined his importance to the Blues on Wednesday, opening the scoring in their thrilling 4-1 extra-time victory over Napoli in the Champions League at Stamford Bridge.

And, following the 5-4 aggregate triumph, the forward made it clear where his heart lies. He told Canal+: "I am not master of my fate, but I will stay as long as possible. I am happy here, to experience moments like these. I hope there will be many others."

Trailing 3-1 after the first leg, Chelsea became only the fourth team in 45 attempts to overturn a deficit of two goals or more, and Drogba admitted feeling relief at seeing his European quest continue.

He added: "Many have said that it was my last game, but the adventure continues. It has been a long time since I have seen a Chelsea [team] like this."

Chelsea's win helped lift the gloom around Stamford Bridge after a string of poor performances led to the sacking of manager Andre Villas-Boas nearly two weeks ago. Frank Lampard, who had a fractious relationship with the Portuguese, was delighted to answer the critics by progressing to the last eight of the Champions League.

"The only way to answer it is to win games and play well and we've done that," he said. "It was an amazing night here. I've had some very good nights here in the Champions League at home and this one goes straight in right at the top because being 3-1 down against a quality team and performing like we did was a great feeling."

Chelsea currently sit fifth in the Premier League, three points adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal, and Lampard admits their beating of Napoli will count for nothing if they do not qualify for next season's Champions League.

He added: "It needs to be a real step forward for us in the Premier League as well. We need to enjoy the fact that we're still in the Champions League but we need to make sure we carry that form into our league games."
