Ivory Coast international Didier Drogba to Return to Chelsea

Former Chelsea striker and legend, Didier Drogba might be returning to the North London club to replace the Technical Director from Nigeria.

Chelsea are considering the possibility of bringing Didier Drogba back to Stamford Bridge to replace former Super Eagles defender, Michael Emenalo,

Emenalo recently resigned his appointment as Technical Director of the Premier League champions. The Telegraph is reporting that Emenalo’s departure could pave the way for Abramovich to try again to bring back Drogba.

Hull City manager Leonid Slutsky is also being considered and can be offered a job at Chelsea in case he is dismissed from the post of head coach of his club.

Drogba scored over 150 goals across two different spells at Chelsea and is currently a player-owner at American club Phoenix Rising.

However, there are reports that French Ligue 1 moneybags Monaco are interested in the services of Emenalo. Emenalo had cited family reasons for his resignation.

“After 10 years here, 10 wonderful, successful years, but very demanding years, it is a very tough decision to decide to step aside”, he said.

“It is entirely my decision and it has come about for very simple reasons. I need an opportunity to get to see my young kids grow and also to step back and reflect on the work that I have done here and the things that we have been able to accomplish together in this great club.

“It is something I have been thinking about for quite some time now and it is something I have discussed with my family and they understand the reasons and the timing for wanting to step aside.”
