Frank Lampard believes Galatasaray striker Didier Drogba would love to return to Chelsea in some capacity in the future.

The Ivory Coast international failed to score against his former side as the Blues were 2-0 winners and booked their place in the Champions League quarter-final draw.

I’m sure that if he can come back, then Didier would love to

Blues manager Jose Mourinho has already indicated that he would be open to the 36-year-old sealing a return to Chelsea in a possible coaching capacity.

“It’s up to him and it’s up to the club, but he will always be a legend,” said Lampard.

“[He] is in the top bracket at this club, so I’m sure that if he can come back, then Didier would love to.”

Lampard sympathised with his former team-mate after Drobga suffered from a lack of service as Chelsea sealed a 3-1 aggregate win against the Turkish champions.

“It was a difficult game for Didier. I think we controlled the game and he didn’t get much
service, but he was still a massive threat with his power,” Lampard added.

“Obviously we wanted to win the game, but we had a lot of respect for Didier and I was pleased with the reception, he got from the fans.”
