Drogba Hopes to Return Soon after Limping Off in Chelsea Victory

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba hopes to get right back to fitness after playing just 28 minutes of his club’s penultimate pre-season friendly on Sunday.

The Ivorian, 33, making his first start since re-signing this summer, limped off injured as Chelsea came from behind to snatch a 2-1 win over Ferencvaros in Budapest.

“I twisted my ankle and I couldn’t continue”, the Ivorian told the club’s website. “In the next few days we are going to do some treatment and I hope everything will be better”.

In Drogba’s absence, Brazilian midfielder Ramires restored parity following Zoran Gera’s opener.

Summer signing Cesc Fabregas helped the Stamford Bridge outfit clinch victory with a solo run and finish ten minutes from time. The goal was the Spaniard’s second in the pre-season since joining from Barcelona.
