Drogba Coming Home?

Drogba Coming Home?

Could, after 341 appearances and 157 goals, the legend that is Didier Drogba be returning home?

The inference, given by the Daily Mirror, this morning is that Jose Mourinho s keen to bring the powerful Ivorian back to Stamford Bridge.

Initially it is suggested that Drogba would lace up his boots again to provide us with something additional on the playing front before then taking up some sort of coaching role.

As you are all aware, Drogba`s last act in a Chelsea shirt was to slot home that fateful spot-kick in the penalty shoot-out in the Allianz Arena before departing for a short spell in Chinese football before ending up in Turkey with Galatasaray.

At 36 years of age, we suspect Didier is in the twilight stages of his career and the question we just have to ask is; -

Bringing back Didier Drogba, are you for or against it?

Will only support his coming back if it's in the coaching capacity, he can be a motivational factor and good example for the likes of lukaku,bamford, feruz and other youngsters aspiring to reach a legendary status at chelsea.any role that involves lacing his boots is a no for me, we dont have to be stucked in the past.

Oh yea! For a team that plays 1 striker up front needs 2 good strikers and a 3rd one that can gives experience and extra squad depth...we already have 2 good strikers in costa and lukaku (if he stays)...drogba can be our 3rd choice striker for next season as he will be important both on and off the pitch....Drogba in as a player-coach!!!!

Didier won't come back as a player but in some other position he'll do. In fact he moved on and we are supposed to move on too.

Nah... Not as a player definitely... That boot has sailed a long time ago.... Is he ready to quit playing for an ambassadorial role or as a coach at ChelseaFC ?? That is another question entirely...

Don't even understand coming back now as a coach. He is still interested in being a player somewhere so he should do that. Take a vacation with family and go start taking coaching classes before coming back to Chelsea in any role.

I'd rather remember him the way he was. He should be a coach - preferrably working with strikers. ;)

Great player for us but his race has run and that ship has sailed.It's time for the club to move forward,not look back.If we're looking for coaches there's plenty qualified one's,not someone living off his name. Didier you've had your time,now get on with the rest of your life but not at Chelsea.

Needless to say The drogs returning as a player wont be good for anyone. I agree with Kaku..if he still has the playing itch he should go the MLS or the middle East for one final big payday playing at a less competitive level before hanging up his boots. Chelsea will be here waiting for him to then return when his batteries are recharged and if it is coaching he fancies, Jose will find him a place mentoring our young strikers. Other options would be to function as a club ambassador. I look forward to the time in the near future when guys like Lamps, Zola, Drogs and yes even RDM and Gus find their way back into the chelsea hierachy in some shape or form. By integrating members of the two Golden generations the club has had thus far into the building for the future no one will any longer be able to say that nonsense of "We aint got no history".

He would be a great motivational coach and he could still work as a sub coming on for the last 20 minutes or so .But really he should go to MLS for a couple of seasons than join our coaching staff .Maybe integrate himself with us as a coach in their off season .
