The Blues were dumped out of Europe’s elite club competition after they lost 2-1 at Stamford Bridge to the Ligue 1 side to leave the FA Cup as their only remaining hope of winning a trophy this season.
Chelsea must now dust themselves down as they prepare for their FA Cup quarter-final clash at Everton on Saturday afternoon.
However, Drogba was quick to pay tribute to his former employers with a social media post on Thursday morning.
Drogba shared the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Happy birthday @chelseafc and all the Chelsea fans around the world!!!! #ktbffh #bluesoldier #cfcfamily #londonpride”
Forward Drogba helped Chelsea win the Premier League under Jose Mourinho last season.
Chelsea are currently 10th in the Premier League table and 10 points behind fourth-placed Manchester City heading into the final 10 games of the season.
