Mourinho keeps faith with Drogba
Didier Droga (l) and Andriy Shevchenko
Drogba and Shevchenko can form a potent partnership says Mourinho
Jose Mourinho has insisted that Didier Drogba still has an important role to play at Chelsea following the arrival of Andriy Shevchenko from AC Milan.

"A lot of people were speaking about Andriy to come and Didier Drogba to go but that was never, never, never the idea," Mourinho told Chelsea TV.

"They are two strikers with very different qualities."

Drogba has said he wants to leave Stamford Bridge but the Chelsea boss said he had "no chance of leaving".

Instead, Mourinho is hoping the two strikers can form a lethal partnership.

He added: "Andriy has creativity speed with the ball, movement, intelligence, he is an amazing player.

"Didier is strong, powerful, a fighter, fantastic in creating spaces for other people to score.

"Andriy has a lot of times played 4-4-2 in Milan like Chelsea do a lot of times with a diamond in midfield and two strikers."
