Didier Drogba: Would love to carry on his run of scoring at Wembley
Didier Drogba has admitted he would love to extend his Wembley scoring streak after making history with his goal in Saturday's FA Cup final.
Drogba became the first man to score in four cup finals in the Blues' 2-1 win over Liverpool and some of his post-match celebrations had the air of a man who had played there for the last time.
The 34-year-old, whose Chelsea contract expires this summer, kissed the pitch at one point but he later denied he had been sending a message about his future.
And Drogba has given supporters hope that he could decide to stay at the club by revealing he has ambitions to play at Wembley again.
"I'd love to," he said. "I'm already happy with what I did.
"The guy who interviewed me told me I had made history and it was nice to celebrate it with that and to remember it."
Indeed, Drogba admitted he had no idea he had created a milestone that might never be equalled, adding: "When I scored, I didn't think about that I didn't even know about it.
"After the game, a journalist came on the pitch and told me about it.
"I am happy with the result and knowing I made history was a big achievement."
Drogba was modest about the magnitude of his achievement, claiming his record could be broken.
"If I did it, I think someone else can break it and maybe score more," he said.
Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard believes Drogba is irreplaceable and is desperate for the Ivory Coast international to stay at the club beyond the summer.
"He's unique," Lampard said after setting up another goal for Drogba against Liverpool.
"There is no-one like Didier as a player, not with the kind of bulldozer kind of thing he has got and with the sublime touch and finish that he has got.
"Everyone has to move on at some stage and you have to find a different player or different way of playing but for what he has done at this club, he deserves everything."
Drogba, 34, snubbed Chelsea's offer of a one-year contract extension, while they in turn refused to bow to his demands for a two-year deal.
Lampard added: "I'm desperate for him to stay. He is a magnificent player. He's a machine.
"His body is a machine, when you look at him stripped down. He's lost no pace, he's lost none of his finishing instinct.
"As a man, I love Didier and whatever he decides to do, whether he stays or whatever, he has been a hero for this club and will go down as a legend.
"It's been a pleasure to play with him and it would be a pleasure to carry on playing with him because he gives defenders such a hard time.
"He is not just that big man. He scores goals that matter and that's priceless."
