Sportsbook information tells us that one of the top teams in the Premier League has locked up one of their best players for a while.
Sports betting info tells us that Chelsea signed Didier Drogba to a new three-year deal that will keep him with the club until 2012. Drodba is one of the few players that can impact soccer odds at the offshore sportsbook.
Sportsbook info shows that Drogba signed the deal on Wednesday, joining teammates Florent Malouda and John Obi Mikel with new terms. “I love the club, I feel good here and I want to continue to win titles with them,” Drogba said. “I stay because I am ambitious to pick up lots more trophies, regain the Premier League title, win cups. It is for this that I have extended my time at Chelsea.”
Chelsea is one of the leading contenders to win the Premier League and the Champions League this season at the sportsbook. Drogba definitely wants to win the Champions League and he makes a big difference in offshore sportsbook odds. “But my number one objective is to win the Champions League. I am convinced that this year we can go to the end and finally lift this trophy.” Sportsbook news has Drogba missing the first three matches in the group stage due to a suspension imposed by the UEFA.
Droba helped Chelsea win the FA Cup last season as sportsbook results show. He got the tying goal in their 2-1 win over Everton as sportsbook stats indicate. In his career, Drogba has won two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and two League Cups with Chelsea as sportsbook stats tell us.
Chelsea is the very close second choice in sportsbook odds to win the Premier League at 2-1. Manchester United is +175 as they are the favorite at the sportsbook. Liverpool is a close third in Premier League odds at the sportsbook at +265. Two other teams are given a chance as well in online betting at the sportsbook as Manchester City is 6-1 while Arsenal is 7-1 at the offshore sportsbook.
Offshore sportsbook news tells us that Chelsea is happy to have Drogba locked up, especially since they did not get Italy midfielder Andrea Pirlo from AC Milan. “I have decided to extend my contract with Chelsea for two extra years and I am very happy and proud to continue to wear the blue of Chelsea until then,” Drogba said.
