Torres purchase not the end for Drogba, says football manager Ancelotti

Didier Drogba will still be playing for Chelsea next season, according to the club's football manager Carlo Ancelotti.
The 33-year-old Ivorian is no longer an automatic first choice for selection, following the arrival of £50 million forward Fernando Torres.
Drogba and Torres have so far failed to establish a meaningful partnership, but football manager Ancelotti is insistent that Torres playing does not mean Drogba has to leave the club.
"Torres was bought as he is a fantastic striker, young, but this doesn't mean Didier has to go," he said.
"He has been a very important player for the club in the past, and he will be for the club in the future."
Drogba opened the scoring against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday (April 15th), leading his side to a 3-1 victory.
Those three points leave Chelsea in third position in the Premier League, with a five-point cushion over Manchester City and a gap of just two points to Arsenal in second.
