Didier Drogba to miss beginning of season after groin surger

Didier Drogba is set to miss next month's Community Shield and Chelsea's Premier League opener after undergoing groin surgery which will rule him out for three weeks.

The Ivory Coast international, who was troubled by the groin problem during Chelsea's double-winning campaign last season, successfully had "minimal invasive surgery" yesterday, the club said on their website.

"The decision to perform the procedure after his return from the World Cup was made to optimise his rehabilitation," read the statement. "He is expected to return to full training in approximately three weeks."

The 32-year-old is therefore expected to miss the 8 August Wembley meeting with Manchester United and probably also the beginning of their title defence at home to West Bromwich Albion on 14 August.

The centre-back Alex and the goalkeeper Petr Cech are also expected to miss the beginning of the season with injuries.
