Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that a role at the club will be available to club legend Didier Drogba once he decides to retire from the game, Sky
The big Ivorian came back to the club this season having left the Blues in 2012 after arguably his biggest ever moment for them – when he scored a late equaliser then the final winning penalty in their Champions League triumph against Bayern Munich.
He has been impressing once again in a Chelsea shirt and bagged the second of their 3-0 win against London rivals Tottenham on Wednesday night.
And Mourinho has now revealed that with being hugely impressed with the 36-year-old’s return, the club will offer the striker a role when he eventually puts an end to a glittering career.
He said: “It’s remarkable. I was expecting exactly this. The important thing is that he’s here and he’s going to finish his career with Chelsea.
“It looks, for me, that he’s going to stay doing other things when he finishes his career.
“It will be his decision when he decides when to stop as a player. It will be something personal.”
Since returning to the club Drogba has had to play second fiddle to man of the moment Diego Costa, but has also been giving important duties on the coaching side of things.
He has also played an important part of their unbeaten start to the season – scoring four important goals from his 12 appearances.
The striker was voted the most popular player to ever play for Chelsea in 2012 by fans.
