Didier Drogba
Chelsea's Didier Drogba

Ivorian striker Didier Drogba was disappointed at being benched during the Blues' recent loss to Manchester City, revealed temporary manager Roberto Di Matteo in an ESPN report.

Di Matteo, whose team tasted their first defeat since Andre Villas-Boas' sacking, chose to play Spanish striker Fernando Torres. Torres has had an infamously poor run of form earlier but did manage to score twice, in a cup game against Leicester City, in the Blues' last game.

Although Drogba was brought on as a substitute for Torres, in the 73rd minute of the game, Di Matteo claims Drogba was not very pleased.

"I did speak to Didier and many other players. He was not happy, but okay," ESPN quoted Di Matteo as saying.

Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain captain Mamadou Sakho has reportedly asked his bosses to launch a bid for Drogba, whose contract ends this summer, with an offer he will not be able to refuse.

Sakho, who is a Frenchman of Senegalese decent, claims Drogba is the perfect player for PSG, who are currently at the top of the French domestic league.

"Honestly, it would be Drogba. I really appreciate him, thanks to his career, where he went, the rage he had to move, what he represents for Africa and his country, He played for Marseille? I'd forgotten about that," Goal.com quoted Sakho as saying.

However, there is also speculation that Drogba may chose to follow former Chelsea team mate Nicolas Anelka and move to the Chinese Super League; indeed, he may even reunite with Anelka, at Shanghai Shenhua.
