Didier Drogba hoping history doesn’t repeat itself in final


Chelsea striker Didier Drogba says it's not easy to forget when you're on the losing side in a final.

The 36-year-old gave Chelsea the lead at Wembley in the 2008 Carling Cup final before Tottenham Hotspur came back to lift the trophy.

And he was in Avram Grant's squad when Chelsea lost 6-5 on penalties to Manchester United in the Champions League final months later.

But on Sunday, the Ivorian will be determined to ensure that history doesn't repeat itself when the Blues take on Spurs at Wembley.

"This one is important because after two years I come back to the club and once again we are in a final, so I would love to win it," Drogba told Sky Sports News.

"Once you get there it is important to make sure you win and then after the game you have the good feeling of a champion.

"When you lose, you always remember it forever, like the one against Manchester United in Moscow or against Tottenham in 2008.

"I have experienced the feeling of losing finals before, so I am scared to lose finals and maybe that is why I give everything."
