DIDIER Drogba has admitted only adrenaline may be getting him through matches as Chelsea enter the final laps of their double quest.
The Ivorian, worryingly pulled up lame at the start of the second half at Tottenham on Saturday and although he soldiered on, he is far from fully fit, at a time when he is most needed.
“The season's long and I've had quite a few niggles and I'm starting to feel it a bit,” the striker said.
“I had a hernia operation six years ago but it's playing up again and causing me discomfort.
“I think maybe adrenaline has got me through matches but you can't continue for long like that.
“I will see if I need an operation, but something needs to be done because I can't continue like this next season.
“There's no question of having anything done now though, with the World Cup on the way.”
