Chelsea are set to announce Didier Drogba as Guus Hiddink’s new assistant manager, according to reports.
The Ivorian international was spotted at Stamford Bridge watching on from the stands alongside Hiddink as Chelsea saw off Sunderland a couple of weeks ago, and since then speculation has been high regarding his future.
Drogba is contracted to MLS side Montreal Impact, but they confirmed that they may not be able to stand in the player’s way if he wants to return to Chelsea as a coach.
Hiddink confirmed that he would love to make Drogba part of his coaching set-up, and he looks like he’s taken a step closer to making his dream a reality.
Despite the striker still having 12-months left on his contract at Montreal, according to Canadian reports, his chances of returning to the club are as little as 10%.
Drogba is desperate to return to Stamford Bridge and Hiddink is ready to offer him a full-time role for as long as he is in charge.
