Chelsea striker Didier Drogba believes Chelsea deserves its place in the Champions League final this weekend, and hopes the club can put the heartache of Moscow in 2008 well and truly behind its by beating Bayern Munich.
The 34-year-old is likely to start at the Allianz Arena in what could be his last game for Chelsea and the striker thinks that a win on Saturday could be the perfect way to forget what happened four years ago.
"After Moscow we thought we were going to get to the final the next year," Drogba told reporters. "But that's the Champions League, it's very difficult to reach the final and that shows how much we deserve to be there today."
Drogba was part of the team that lost against Manchester United on penalties in Moscow. However the striker did not take part in the shootout after he was sent off in extra time.
"It's not good to speak about the past because we have a great moment here. I'm going to try to make sure that for my teammates, this is a great one.
"I've played a lot [of big games] with Chelsea, but this one is going to be special because it's only the second time we have reached the Champions League final. We are going to do everything to go there and be ready to play against this German team."
