Ivory Coast and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has revealed that he will return to Stamford Bridge after his playing career in a capacity other than a player, this is according to reports.
Drogba was a striker favourite for Mourinho during his playing days and he will be fondly remembered for scoring the Champions winner against Bayern Munich 2012. Drogba was subsequently named Chelsea ever greatest player in a poll conducted by Chelsea magazine.
Drogba had an interview session on set with BBC and he was asked of a possible return with Chelsea and he revealed that he has also agreed with the Chelsea’s director of joining Chelsea after dropping his boots.
“I want to give back to the club which has given so much to me. I have agreed that with the club directors.
Why not manager? Why not sporting director, trainer at the academy or maybe an advising role for strikers?”
He added: “If the club has kept him that means owner Roman Abramovich thinks that he is the right man.
“I think the players trust him and he is giving his best to change the situation.”
Chelsea have had a torrid start to the season and Mourinho has been tipped with moving away from Stamford bridge.
