Thibaut Courtois wants Didier Drogba return

Goalkeeper keen to see legend return to Chelsea

Thibaut Courtois has admitted he would love to see Didier Drogba return to Chelsea as a part of the coaching setup.

The Ivorian only left Stamford Bridge over the summer after agreeing a two-year deal with MLS side Montreal Impact, but after being spotted in the stands with Guus Hiddink a couple of weeks ago, speculation about his future has been high.

After watching Chelsea beat Sunderland 3-1, it was confirmed by Hiddink that the plan is to make Drogba one of his assistants in order to resurrect the club’s dismal campaign.

Since then, Montreal released a formal statement saying they have no say in the matter, despite the striker still having 12-months left on his contract.

As it stands nothing further has developed, but Courtois has admitted he’d love to see Drogba back at Stamford Bridge.

Courtois would love Drogba to return

“I had a very good relationship with [Drogba] last year,” Courtois said. “He was great for the dressing room and our team.

“If he comes back as a coach it will be a great addition to all the team.”
