Drogba puts team glory ahead of goal haul

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba insists it would mean nothing to finish as top scorer in the Champions League if the Blues fail to win it.

The Ivory Coast international has smashed 29 goals in all competitions so far and is on course to become the first Chelsea player since Kerry Dixon to score 30 in a season.

Drogba's sensational season has seen him crowned African Player of the Year and silence the boo-boys who once slammed the £24million acquisition as a diver and a cheat.

However, he will take some limited pleasure if he manages to become the first Chelsea player for 22 years to reach the 30-goal mark - as long as the team are winners.

Drogba said: 'It would be nothing special if we don't win the Champions League.

'I know how big Kerry Dixon was for Chelsea and it will be something great for me to reach his record.'

His goals have included a stunning brace against Arsenal to land Chelsea their second Carling Cup triumph inside three seasons.

That success took Jose Mourinho's trophy haul to five since he was appointed as Chelsea manager in the summer of 2004 and Drogba will only be happy if his goals haul in Europe earns the Blues more silverware.

'There is no interest for me to score if we don't win,' he added.

'I want my team to win and everybody to be happy. Even if I don't score until the end of the season it won't matter if we win the Champions League and the FA Cup.'

Drogba's exploits in front of goal have put him in line for the coveted PFA Player of the Year award from his fellow professionals.

Drogba, along with Manchester United's Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo, are the two players most likely to fight it out for the prestigious honour.

But the Ivorian played down his own chances of adding the English title to the African continental award - suggesting team-mate Michael Essien and former England international Paul Scholes should also be considered.

Drogba added: 'It is difficult for me as everybody is saying me or Ronaldo. But Essien and Scholes are having good seasons and so it is difficult to choose one.

'Michael has made a big contribution and I think he deserves some big praise for that.'

Drogba will spearhead the Chelsea attack against Porto along with Andriy Shevchenko tonight as the Blues look to earn a place in the last eight of the competition at the expense of Mourinho's former club.

The first leg in Porto finished 1-1 thanks to Shevchenko's equaliser and Mourinho is keen to play down the hype associated with the club he led to the Champions League crown three years ago.

Mourinho said: 'I respect our opponents and I expect they will be strong but I have good players and I expect that they will perform well.

'I don't think it is an issue any more. One day I will play against Chelsea. I cannot make my career thinking about how I was once in this club or that club.

'I have to play the game without such emotions. This is just another game. I just want to be in the quarter-final. My desire is not to beat Porto but to be in the quarter-final, if you understand that.'
