Chelsea’s Ivorian forward, Didier Drogba has stated that he no longer found football-life bearable at Chelsea but following the axing of Chelsea’s Manager, Luiz Scolari, he believes that betters day may well be near.

Prior to the sacking of the Chelsea’s manager, Drogba had the following to say to French newspaper L’Equipe: "You can’t have a 10-year career where everything is great. I am in a period like that - a little less good. It is not easy but it is not the end of the world. The main thing is that I am in good health physically. It’s a little difficult at the moment, but we will find ways to return, they will be brighter days.”

Didier Drogba had been out of favor with the now-axed Scolari and contemplated a move away from stamford bridge, with Inter Milan, Manchester City, Marseille and Everton all possible destinations.

Mid January a story about Drogba’s departure from Chelsea, first leaked by The Daily Mirror, claimed that Luiz Felipe told the Ivorian footballer that he could leave if he wished to. According to the ex Chelsea manager, Luiz Felipe Scolari, ‘All the players have had their chance. I have given every player at least five or six games to impress.’

Quoting a close friend, The Daily Mirror also reported that "Didier is so disgusted with Chelsea that he is ready to go. He is happy to make a financial sacrifice, so long as he can play for a club that really wants him."

Drogba along with Ivorian team mate Salamon Kalou, and Nigeria’s Mikel Obi have all expressed their sentiments on the fired coach but have promised to get the club back on the success paths.

The Elephants of Ivory Coast play a friendly international on Wednesday against Turkey and Drogba has promised to use the game to usher in a new wind in what has been a dull season for him.

Some think that the bad blood between Didier Drogba and Luiz Felipe Scolari had an adverse and dangerous effect on the footballer’s enthusiasm. Experts say that all eyes will be on Drogba to deliver his best following the latest turn of events, otherwise, there will be some question marks to crown Scolari’s departure.

Scolari had been fired on Monday after Chelsea’s 0-0 draw at home to Hull on saturday.
