Drogba backs Hiddink to unite ChelseaFebruary 20th, 2009 - 2:09 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb.20 (ANI): Ivory Coast and Chelsea striker Didier Drogba believes that Dutch coach Guss Hiddink will be successful in uniting the players at the club, and take it back on the victory trail.
Hiddink is just what Chelsea need right now. When you manage a team like Chelsea, you need to unite the team when things are rough not divide them. Chelsea is a family and a family needs to be together. When Scolari started blaming individuals, then that was bad. To name one player as to blame for what happened in a squad of 24 is wrong, The Sun quoted Drogba, as saying. Scolari claimed that Drogba was one of three players who betrayed him and led to his eventual demise.
Drogba said: How can one player be responsible for not winning for so many weeks and losing points? This is not an individual sport. When you win games everyone is happy and enjoys it together. But when we lose we have to lose together too. And, if I had as much power with the owner as has been said, then Mourinho would still be here, no? If I had that power! As the squad prepares for a crucial Premier League visit to Aston Villa tomorrow, the players are already looking to improve under Hiddink.
Drogba insisted: I think with this coach there are a lot of good things to come. (ANI)
