Being captain for the day was an honour, claims Ivorian...Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has praised his side after a 4-0 rout of Blackpool maintained the Blues' perfect start to the season.
Despite creating a host of chances in the second half, all the goals were scored in a first-half blitz thanks to strikes from Salomon Kalou, Drogba and a Florent Malouda brace, but Drogba believes more goals could have been scored.
"It's fantastic you know I think we have improved and we try and score the most goals we can and we scored four in the first half and I think in the second we had seven chances," Drogba told Sky Sports after the game.
"I think it was a little bit of a lack of concentration [to not score more], poor position on the last pass, so this is something we have to think about even though we had a great result today."
With both captain John Terry and vice-captain Frank Lampard missing through injury, the armband was given to Drogba for the match and the Ivorian claims it was an honour to be captain whilst hoping his team-mates can get back to fitness quickly.
"It's fantastic you know, I've been here for six years. But it's always better to have them [Terry and Lampard] out on the pitch. I want them to come back quickly but it was an honour and pleasure for me to be captain today." he concluded.
