Didier Drogba ruled out with ankle injury

Didier Drogba is hopeful of returning to action sooner than planned after injuring his right ankle in Sunday's 2-1 pre-season win against Ferencvaros.

Drogba went down clutching his ankle midway through the first-half and had to be replaced by Oscar after 28 minutes.

The former Ivory Coast international crumbled to the floor after trying to meet a cross inside the Ferencvaros box.

The 36-year-old tried to continue playing but had to curtail his night shortly after as he limped off with his right boot in his hand.
Speaking about his injury the striker told chelseafc.com: 'I twisted my ankle and I couldn't continue.

'In the next few days we are going to do some treatment and I hope everything will be better.'
Drogba will definitely miss the Blues' final pre-season game at home to Real Sociedad on Tuesday, with their Premier League opener against Burnley on 18 August.
