Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is eager to bring back striker Didier Drogba to Stamford Bridge - whether it be as a player or even as a coach.

The Ivorian international is considered a legend within the ranks at Chelsea and the fans would be just as eager to see the striker back at the club whether it be on the pitch of behind the scenes.

Drogba's reputation was enhanced when he scored the equaliser in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich two years ago. Not only that, he then converted the final penalty which meant Chelsea won their first ever Champions League trophy.

Unfortunately for the fans though, that was the last kick Drogba took in a Chelsea shirt as he travelled to China, but after a financial crisis hit the club, he then moved to Turkey in order to join Galatasaray.

The Ivory Coast international has one year left on his current contract at the Turkish side and it is not certain whether he will stay on longer, but Mourinho has admitted that he would love to see the player back at Stamford Bridge after enjoying a successful eight-year stint with the London club.

"Drogba is worshipped in this club and this is perfectly normal," Mourinho told Portuguese paper A Bola.

"I think one day he'll return to Chelsea. He is a very important player in Chelsea's history and will always be in the memory of the fans, the management, the owner and his team-mates. 

"Didier will have a future at Chelsea. As a coach? I do not know."
