Drogba appeals for Chelsea calm
Didier Drogba
Didier Drogba has thrown his support behind Jose Mourinho
Didier Drogba admits there is tension at Chelsea as speculation mounts about the future of boss Jose Mourinho and his alleged rift with Roman Abramovich.

Mourinho has failed to dampen growing suggestions that he will quit Chelsea at the end of the season, despite being in the hunt for four trophies.

And Drogba said: "There are tensions, we cannot prevent them. That's football, it is not easy to live with.

"But the players are sticking together. That is the most important thing."

Drogba added: "Are we in crisis? In the league we are six points behind Manchester United and still on course for the title.

"We've qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League and for the final of the league cup and we are still on course for the FA Cup. Clearly it's a very difficult period."

And he insisted he totally supports boss Mourinho saying: "How could I not be behind someone who always supported me, who has helped me win trophies and put Chelsea at the top of English football?

"There were good players at Chelsea before his arrival but he brought a culture of winning."
