Claims of Drogba departure rejected

By Football News



The former Chelsea forward scored twice in  3-3 draw with Shandong Luneng on Saturday, while team-mate and fellow Stamford Bridge old boy Nicolas Anelka scored a goal of his own.

Reports earlier this week suggested the pair could be forced out of the club due a row between the club's shareholders.

Chairman Zhu Jan reportedly wants a majority stake in the company and it could come at the expense of the former Chelsea stars.

But Drobga's management rubbished the reports as 'nonsense.'

A spokeswoman added the Ivory Coast man will return to China after fulfilling his international duties against Senegal on Thursday.
