London, Sep 19(ANI): Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, who is closing in on 100 goals for the club, dreams of being one of the best players to have represented the Blues.
Drogba has scored 98 goals for Chelsea since his 24 million pound move from Marseille five years ago.
“To be able to score 100 goals for Chelsea is a very big achievement. I have never done that with any of my other teams. It shows how settled I am here and now I want to go on and break all the club records I can,” The Sun quoted Drogba, as saying.
“I am a striker and it’s really important for me to get goals and try to make history at this club. I was already a part of Chelsea history when we won the Premier League for the first time in 2005 and then defended our title a year later,” he added.
The 31-year-old further said that all the players aim to succeed, and want to see their names go down in the club’s history, so the achievement would be something that he would relish.
“I hope that one day we can all come back to Chelsea and get the applause from the fans. Because that would mean we have achieved something big and special,” Drogba said.
“It would make me really proud because when I see the former Chelsea players go round the pitch I think ‘That’s because they did something special’. It makes me realise the history here at this club and it’s something I want to be a part of for many years,” he added.
Bobby Tambling, who played for the Blues from 1959 to 1970, leads the way with 202 goals. Kerry Dixon is second on the list with 193 goals, while Roy Bentley and Peter Osgood are joint third with 150 goals.
Drogba, who missed the Champions League game againt Porto through suspension, will be looking forward to score the two goals during his return match against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. (ANI)
