Chelsea striker U-turn nearly complete

Look who’s nearly come crawling back at the Bridge. It seemed as though one of the most nailed-on Premier League departees would be taking place at Chelsea this summer, with Didier Drogba grumbling all-season long about how affected he was by Jose Mourinho’s exit from the club, and how he nearly went on strike!

The BBC report that the Ivorian pre-madonna is looking likely to start the season under the watchful eye of Phil Scolari, with his agent reporting that Didier has calmed down after nasty Roman and Peter got rid of his beloved coach.

He said: “Didier has given himself 10 days. If nothing happens he’ll stay and extend his contract by two years.”

Seydi added: “He doesn’t see himself starting training in a few days with Chelsea and then leaving to a new club.

“The reality of November is not that of today. At the time Didier was affected by departure of Jose Mourinho who he was very close to. Today, there is nothing to say that he won’t stay at Chelsea.”

In other words, he’s seen a new manager come in who loves him, there’s been relatively little interest in Drogba (especially as he would cost a bucketload) and the player changes his tune more than a jukebox. Nevertheless, Deputy Drog could be a smash hit next season, providing he steers clear of injury, especially with the service he’ll get from Lamps, Deco, Ballack and Co.
