Since leaving Chelsea, Didier Drogba’s heart has been with the English club so much that it seems he can’t grant an interview about his next move in football without mentioning Stamford Bridge.
After putting pen to paper in April as co-owner of American club, Phoenix Rising – and, by that arrangement becoming the first footballer to play in a club he co-owns – the Ivorian mentioned that he’d still love to go back to Chelsea someday.
Well, it seems that day is near because, as The Sun reports, Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich, could bring him back to Stamford Bridge as sporting director.
This move comes after Nigerian, Michael Emenalo, resigned on Monday as the club’s technical director. It’s expected that Drogba will take up the role, giving his legend status in Chelsea and his close relationship with Abramovich. In addition, this could mean that the 39-year-old’s next move has already been sealed as he plans to retire from playing once his contract with Phoenix Rising expires.
