CHELSEA striker Didier Drogba has dramatically spoken for the first time about the horrific collision which knocked him out for nearly eight minutes.
And with searing honesty the big Ivorian admitted: "The most important thing is I'm alive." Drogba fell to the ground motionless after a challenge with Norwich keeper John Ruddy last month.
Medics raced on to the field and applied an oxygen mask as worried players looked on before Drogba was carried off and taken to hospital.
He suffered concussion and a perforated eardrum but hopes to come back at home to Swansea today.
But Drogba believes he is fortunate to still be around.
In an exclusive interview with SunSport, he said: "When I see those images again it's scary. I was lucky, definitely.
"Playing football is important for me but being alive and being with my kids and having my family happy that I'm still here is the most important thing."
