Jose Mourinho has expressed his desire to link up with Chelsea legend Didier Drogba again and believes he will return to west London one day.

The Ivory Coast international is a legend at Stamford Bridge after a successful eight-year spell at the club. 

During that time he scored 157 goals in 341 games for the Blues; the last of which was the crucial equaliser in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

That final goal was followed up by the winning penalty to give Chelsea their inaugural Champions League win, sealing Dorgba's place in the club's folklore in the process.

Drogba is currently plying his trade in Turkey with Galatasaray but has just one year remaining on his contract.

It was recently reported that Mourinho was looking in to the possibility of signing the 35-year-old for a second time, all-be-it in a player-coach role.

Mourinho has now confirmed that he believes Drogba will return to the club in some capacity in the near future.

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

"I think one day he'll return to Chelsea. 

"It is a very important player in Chelsea's history and will always be in the memory of the fans, the management, the owner of teammates. 

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