Chelsea star mocks Arsenal yet again – Reports

Didier Drogba is not willing to let Arsenal forget that Chelsea lifted the Europa League final in Baku this year, not the Gunners.

The Blues hammered the Gunners 4-1 in May, lifting the giant trophy in Azerbaijan after goals from Olivier Giroud, Pedro and two from Eden Hazard.

It was the end of, what turned out to be, a successful season for the west London side, who finished third and added the European silverware to their trophy cabinet.

Drogba certainly sees as a good campaign for his former side, while he was happy to remind Arsenal fans that their team fell short in the Europa League final.

When asked how far Chelsea are behind Manchester City and Liverpool, Drogba told talkSPORT:

‘I think they’re not that far, you’ve got those two teams flying, but despite all the criticism, Chelsea had a good season.

‘Win the UEFA Cup [Europa League], not every team in this league can do it. We did it against a good Arsenal team. Maybe they didn’t perform on that day, but it’s a final and the best team wins, that’s what happens.

‘Next year is a new season and I can’t wait for it.’

Despite the European triumph, Chelsea have lost their manager, Maurizio Sarri, this summer as he has signed a deal to take over as Juventus manager.

Assistant manager Gianfranco Zola is also leaving the club, with another club legend, Frank Lampard, the favourite to take over in the Stamford Bridge dugout.

However, the two-window transfer ban imposed on Chelsea is still in place, currently, so there is unlikely to be much change in terms of playing staff this summer.
