Interim-manager wants striker to stick around

Chelsea interim-manager Guus Hiddink has confirmed he wants club legend Didier Drogba to stick around and become one of his assistants at Stamford Bridge.

The pair watched Chelsea‘s 3-1 win over Sunderland in the stands on Saturday afternoon and after the game, the Dutchman admitted he would love to have Drogba stay on as one of his assistants.

The Ivorian left Stamford Bridge at the end of last season, after agreeing to join MLS side Montreal Impact, but there is a chance he could stay in England until the American league restarts again in the New Year.

The 37-year-old still has one-year left on his Montreal contract, but Hiddink has admitted he’d love to have him on the coaching staff if possible.

“I’d be happy to have him here,” Hiddink said.

“At the moment he is still attached to his contract in Canada. But it is intended that he’s involved.”
