Football Mourinho: I’d like Drogba to be back here

268942hp2Premier League Chelsea topped their Champions League group E thanking their Senegalese striker Demba Ba who owned the sole strike of their 1-0 win over already eliminated Steaua.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho who already said not being totally impressed by the performance of his troop this season, expressed his desire for the return of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba to the Stamford Bridge.

The Ivorian superstar who scored the winning penalty in Chelsea’s Champions League triumph against Bayern in 2012 is still worshipped by the Stamford Bridge fans.


“He deserves a reception here, even better, he deserves it even more than me,” Mourinho says.

“He deserves to get what I got against Hull City [in my first game back in charge this season]. He deserves double or three times that. I know what I felt and I think he deserves that.

“So, yes, Galatasaray is difficult, very difficult but I would like Didier to be back here and to feel what I felt.”

Drogba is still the record holder for Chelsea when it comes to goals scored in Europe, with 34 goals in 69 games.
