Drogba determined to avenge defeat

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba already has his sights set on the Champions League final ahead of Wednesday night's last-16 first-leg clash with Juventus.

The 30-year-old Ivory Coast frontman admits he is still haunted by memories of last season's defeat on penalties to Manchester United in the final, and is determined to put that right this term.

"My desire to win this trophy is bigger than ever, having lost twice in the semi-finals and once in the final," Drogba told L'Equipe.

"It is a difficult competition for us. Memories of Moscow are hard to erase, I still think (about it).

"Our supporters deserve to have won the Champions League and this year we will play the same way to reach the final and this time we will bring the trophy to Stamford Bridge."
