No Chelsea return for Didier Drogba

Former-striker is set to remain with MLS side

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba is not going to be returning to Stamford Bridge as Guus Hiddink’s assistant.

It was widely speculated that the Ivorian would leave Montreal Impact in order to link-up with the Dutchman on the coaching team at Stamford Bridge following the dismissal of Jose Mourinho.

Drogba was spotted with Hiddink and Roman Abramovich during Chelsea‘s win over Sunderland, the day it was announced Hiddink would take over until the end of the season.

Drogba Staying Put

However, it has now officially been confirmed that the former-striker won’t be returning to West London and will in fact be staying with the MLS side for the remainder of his contract.

Montreal tweeted that the striker would be taking part in their pre-season training camp, and Drogba himself also confirmed the news by tweeting: “On way to Qatar to do some preparation work for pre-season.”

It was heavily reported that Drogba was prepared to retire from the game in order to leave Montreal, but he quickly dismissed those claims via his Twitter account.
