Chelsea striker in race to recovery

Chelsea forward, Didier Drogba, is desperate to get back to full fitness in time for the Blues’ clash against Manchester United in nine days time.

The Ivorian international is suffering from a concussion after being knocked unconscious against Norwich City almost two weeks ago.

Canaries keeper, John Ruddy, went up for a challenge with the striker, only for Drogba to fall limply from the staggering height, and be transported straight to hospital.

Blues boss, Andre Villas Boas, stated: “We just have to make sure that he’s fully recovered before he comes back to training because that’s the requirement you have to do neurologically.”

Commenting on the race against time, the manager added: “Let’s push it to the limit to try for him to be available for Manchester United. I wouldn’t say he would be available for Leverkusen.”
