Drogba back as a 'Blue' on one-year contract

Chelsea 2012 champions League winning hero Drogba, now 36, left Stamford Bridge in 2012 after scoring the winning penalty in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich after a 1-1 draw over 90 minutes and extra-time.
Didier Drogba joined Shanghai Shenhua in China before turning out last term for Turkish side Galatasaray, and faced Jose Mourinho’s side in the Champions League last 16 where Gala suffered defeat.
He remains a firm favourite among the Chelsea diehards with the Stamford Bridge club expected to announce his return before the weekend.
He will sign as a player with a view to becoming part of the coaching staff at the club where he spent eight seasons between 2004-2012 scoring 157 goals.
“He is still very adapted to the needs of the Premier League and we are thinking about it in a non-emotional way,” said Chelsea manager Mourinho.
“If you bring him back it is not because he is Didier or scored the most important goal in the history of Chelsea, or because I read I need an assistant, no.
“If I bring him back, and the decision has to be made soon, it is because as a player he has qualities to make the team stronger. The team is not about the eleven. It is about the different options and as an option I would not say no about the possibility.”
