Drogba, who turns 33 in March, told Chelsea’s official magazine: “I think I’m getting better with age. I started very late at the highest level as I was 25 when I played one season for Marseille and then I came here.

“So I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing, but I feel I’m improving every season. And, because I started late, I’m not tired or fed up with playing. I don’t know when I’m going to stop because I love what I’m doing.”

Drogba has been captaining Chelsea in the absence of John Terry and Frank Lampard but his time with the armband has co-incided with a poor run of results.

One point from three Premier League games has meant Chelsea surrendering top spot, while Drogba has now not found the net in six matches in all competitions.

He said: “I try to motivate and give the example on the pitch – you’ve got to make sure what you say in the dressing room, you apply it on the pitch. But it’s the same when I’m not captain.

“This armband doesn’t change anything for me. I don’t change my personality, I’m the same as always.”

“First of all, it is for everybody to be in good health because with health you can try to achieve everything you want,” he said.

“Then I want to see everybody at Chelsea celebrating the Champions League at Wembley.”
