Chelsea’s Didier Drogba: I wanted to work with Jose Mourinho again

Didier Drogba has highlighted his desire to work with Jose Mourinho again as a key reason behind his decision to return to Chelsea.

The 36-year-old completed his switch to the west London side on Friday, just 26 months after helping the Blues win their inaugural Champions League crown thanks to a penalty shootout win against Bayern Munich.

The Ivory Coast international, who left Turkish outfit Galatasaray at the end of the season, has signed a one-year deal with Chelsea.

My desire to win is still the same and I look forward to the opportunity to help this team. I am excited for this next chapter of my career

Drogba won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups as well as the Champions League during his first spell at the club – and the Ivorian is eyeing more silverware.

“It was an easy decision – I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to work with Jose again,” Drogba told Chelsea’s website.

“Everyone knows the special relationship I have with this club and it has always felt like home to me.

“My desire to win is still the same and I look forward to the opportunity to help this team. I am excited for this next chapter of my career.”

Drogba scored 157 goals in 341 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions following his move to Stamford Bridge from Marseille in 2004.
