Mourinho Explains Move for Drogba

Mourinho Explains Move for Drogba

Our poll leaves those who view in little doubt as to what the supporters think of bringing the legend that is Didier Drogba back.

Perhaps the old adage about - never going back - has influenced voting.

However it appears, if Jose Mourinho gets his way then Didier could be coming back to Stamford Bridge inside the next forty-eight hours.

Talking about the possible recruitment of a player who scored 157 goals for us with 100 of those coming in the Premier League, Jose has remarked to the media,

"We want to win titles and Didier is still one of the best strikers in Europe."

"We feel that Didier belongs to us."

"He is very adapted to the needs of the Premier League. We are thinking about it in a non-emotional way. If we bring him back n it is not because he is Didier or he scored the most important goal in the history of Chelsea or because I read I need an assistant."

"If I bring him back, and a decision has to be made soon, it is because he has qualities to make the team stronger."


Does it all start to make sense now or are you still dead against the idea?

Still against the idea... As a player, that's a No no, this might unsettle Lukaku. Jose shud wait until Lukaku returns to the club, have a chat wit him then he can make the decision. He shud not bring back DD until he's had a chat with Rumelu Lukaku, that's a safe and wise thing to do. We shudnt lose a bright 21yr old prodigy who can turn out to be worldclass for a short term stop gap 36yr old. That'll be so stupid to do.

As a squad player, i think it will be a good move. I fancy Didier to lift another trophy with us before finally hanging his boots.

We need leaders in the team. No Lampard and Cole robs us of two senior figures, Drogba can provide that leadership even if he struggles to score goals this season.

guessing the club want a short term fix that doesn't block youth and also just back up for costa,torres and maybe lukaku. With cole and lampard leaving it leaves a big hole in experience and personality In the dressing room. Drogba will give that in abundance

Clearly Drogba won't play week in, week out. However, 20 minutes to go, looking for a goal, he has still got it. If we can get Drogba in and Torres out it will be a masterstroke. If Jose tells Torres Costa, Lukaku & Drogba are in front of you surely Torres has to take the hint.

Going to be a very expensive strike force with Drogba, Torres, Costa and Lukaku. Forget even the effect on Lukaku, but even Costa. Torres will be shattered with this pursuit, but can't see him giving a fuss about leaving Chelsea, since he is getting the 175k check a week that he won't get from anywhere. His international football spot is not under threat given how he makes the team even if he scores 0 goals and Spain is not a force to be reckoned with anymore so he could care less about how sitting on Chelsea's reserves will affect his spot with the international team. Costa on the other hand is fresh, big price tag, good salary, a lot of expectations from everyone and if DD is started over him, might affect his confidence a bit even he is a fierce competitor as much as Suarez. Didier is a legend and one of the biggest game players English Football has ever seen, but I fail to see the confidence shown to new signing Costa, young Lukaku and busted Torres by signing a 36 year old player to compete with them. It's like having Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Donnovan McNabb and RGIII/Andrew Luck in one team and thinking healthy competition which will benefit the club will be the output. People will get *****ed off and leave and by next season, we will be looking for 1-3 strikers to replace the departed ones. That's too much turnover at the striking position in the last 3 seasons.

now every body is expecting cfc to win the epl so adding him is not a problem but expect him to score you vital goals.

Costa will be our starter. Unless he is a total disaster Drogba won't replace him - even then Lukaku would surely be second choice to start regularly. In fact Drogba will not be able to play 90 minutes every week. Costa is not threatened by Drogba. Torres is the player threatened by Drogba. There was a story the other day about Monaco being interested in Torres. That one could fly. Because of the 0% tax in Monaco Torres could half his wages and still earn the same money. We can only pray!

Whatever the case is, 1 striker (preferably Torres) has to be moved to accommodate Didier's return. Only that makes financial sense for Chelsea. Maybe that's the only way Moutinho is confident in bringing Drogba back.

If Drogba comes, it means Torres is leaving. Costa, Lukaku, Drogba will be our strikers
