Chelsea will be holding talks with star striker Didier Drogba over the possibility of signing a new contract. The striker is out of contract at the end of the season.
He recently helped Chelsea win their first ever Champions League title by scoring the winning penalty against Bayern Munich on May 19. It looked like Chelsea were going to lose the competition it again in the final when Thomas Müller scored for Bayern Munich with only 7 minutes remaining. However, Didier Drogba did not take long to equalise for Chelsea after he scored with a thundering header 2 minutes from time.
He almost turned the villain for Chelsea after giving away a penalty in the extra time, but Cech saved the weak penalty from Bayern Munich midfielder Arjen Robben. The match went into penalties and Didier Drogba had the opportunity to give Chelsea their first glory in Europe when he stepped up to score the decisive penalty.
The Ivory Coast international could have been in the same position in the 2008 Champions League final had he not been sent off. However, this time around he made no mistakes as he sent Chelsea fans into Wonderland after their triumph in Europe that makes them join the elite clubs in the world.
“Didier is a big-match player and he did it once again. I think Ron Gourlay is going to sit down with his agent this week and we’ll see where it goes. We have to do what’s best for Chelsea Football Club and Didier has to do what’s best for him, we’ll just see how the discussions go,” said Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck following the end of the match. Didier Drogba has now scored nine goals in 9 cup finals for Chelsea. His goals have helped Chelsea win the FA Cup and the Champions League this season.
