Totti up for the cup

Roma captain Francesco Totti is relishing the chance to once again play in the Champions League.

To return to the Champions League is gratifying for me and for Roma as a team. I feel fortunate.

I am happy with what I've done so far in my career and I hope I can give a lot more with this jersey.

Time goes by but fortunately I don't feel it.

I will be the first to step aside when I no longer have the strength to play.

– Francesco Totti

The Drog is back

Didier Drogba trained with Chelsea on the eve of a possible Champions League return.

The final act of Drogba's first spell was scoring the decisive penalty in the 2012 European Cup final win.

The 36-year-old, who rejoined the Blues this summer, missed Saturday's win over Swansea with an ankle injury but trained ahead of Wednesday night's Group G opener with Schalke at Stamford Bridge.
