Chelsea legend Didier Drogba wants to return to Stamford Bridge…but only to train

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has stated that he is keen to make a return to the club from MLS to train during the off-season, according to the Daily Express.

The Ivorian veteran made the move to Montreal Impact over the summer, but the MLS season has now come to a close.

He helped fire the Canadian club to the semi-finals of the playoffs by notching 12 goals in 14 appearances, but their quest for glory was ended by Columbus Crew.

And the 37-year-old is now keen to link up with his former teammates once again, provided he has permission from both sides.

“To train? Why not? But it’s something I would need to discuss with [Montreal], because I belong to them,” he told French news agency AFP.

“I signed a one-and-a-half year contract, I always like to respect what I have signed.”

But he was quick to rule out the idea of returning to the club to play, despite their recent struggle for form this term.

“Playing? I’m not too hot on that idea,” he added.

“I need to rest and make sure that I’m ready for the new season.”
