Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has cast fresh doubts on his future at the club beyond this summer, stating it will be very interesting to see his contract talks progresses this summer.
Rumors of Drogba, once thought indispensible at Chelsea, moving away has been rife since the deadline day arrival of Fernando Torres in January.
Chelsea's position on Drogba isn't clear either as the Ivoirian's contract expires next year. His failure to strike up an on-field understanding with Torres hasn't helped and Drogba admitted to facing difficulties accepting his reduced importance though he soon came to understand the situation and accept Ancelotti's rotation policy.
He said, It will be very interesting to see what happens in May. Then we can sit and speak about it and have a coffee.'
It wasn't easy the first week (after Torres' arrival) but that's normal. Today, I know that we're doing this for the best of the team. The team is more competitive. Everybody talks a lot about my future but I'm enjoying it and I'm happy to be here.''
We have a lot of strikers but I can't complain, I'm not the only one. Salomon Kalou is not playing, (Florent) Malouda is not playing, sometimes Anelka, sometimes me, Nando. I think it's good for the team. A team like Chelsea must have a lot of players to achieve a lot in a year.''
About Ancelotti's rotation policy, he went on, Communication is important - communication is what makes a player feel profitable in every situation.
Chelsea qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday, but Drogba said a place in the semi-final is the minimum requirement at Chelsea.
For a team like Chelsea, we have to be, minimum, in the semi-final every year. You need to keep trying. I think it is little details in the Champions League, it's all about details and also we need a little bit of luck to win it. We didn't have it in the last final but you have to do everything to have luck on your side. Hopefully, this time we're going to do it.''
