The Blues goalkeeper says he is excited ahead of the Champions League tie against Galatasaray but has urged his team-mates to be careful of how they defend against the Ivorian
|7/1||Didier Drogba is 7/1 with Betway to score first against Chelsea on Wednesday|
Jose Mourinho’s men travel to Turkey for the first leg of their round-of-16 fixture, while Drogba faces his former side for the first time since he departed in June 2012.
Drogba won 10 honours during his time at Chelsea and ended his eight-year spell at Stamford Bridge by netting the penalty kick against Bayern Munich which won the club their only Champions League trophy.
"It's a new situation for us," said Cech.
"Didier was with us for nine years and a huge part of our team, a successful team, in that time. It's the first time he'll be playing against us.
"We know how important he is for Galatasaray, how big a player he is, so we have to be careful how we play against him and make sure he doesn't score.
"I'm excited because it's a play-off game in the Champions League, and that's always a big challenge for every player.
"Everyone knows the atmosphere here. I've never played here myself, it's my first time - so let's see."
