Cahill keen to learn from Blues veterans

Gary Cahill has urged Chelsea to keep hold of their old masters - because he has not finished studying under them yet.

The last four months have seen Cahill subjected to a crash course in what it means to play for the Blues, whom he helped lead to Champions League glory on Saturday night.

Speculation has been rife all season about a summer clearout of the club's so-called `old guard' and reports today suggested Munich hero Didier Drogba had already agreed a deal to join Shanghai Shenhua.

Cahill insisted the performance of Drogba and fellow thirty-somethings Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole in Saturday's epic victory over Bayern Munich proved they still had plenty to offer - especially to him.

"I don't see it being the end," the England defender said. "Frank Lampard was fantastic. Ashley Cole was amazing and he's probably been the best left-back in the world for many years.

"Didier, again, turned up, the big man for the big occasion. You just learn from these sorts of boys, especially myself. Hopefully, I can learn fast."
