Drogba was close to rejoining Chelsea as a coach last season after an offer from Guus Hiddink was rejected by him on grounds that he was already in contract with MLS side Montreal Impact.
Drogba ceiled his fate as a Chelsea legend as he won 4 premier league titles with them and is remembered for his remarkable performance at Champions League that saw Chelsea lift the trophy for the first time back in 2012.
He is the Chelsea’s 4th all-time goal scorer with 164 goals which also makes him all-time best goal scorer of Chelsea who is a non-English player.
