Jose Mourinho's crazy to want a Drogba reunion

Jose Mourinho has revealed that he would love Didier Drogba to return to Stamford Bridge in the Champions League this season. 

The Blues boss also admitted that it would be "hell" if his side had to play in Turkey in the knockout stages. 

And he would be right. 

When discussing the possibility of facing Galatasaray and Drogba, Mourinho told reporters: "It would be very difficult, especially in Galatasaray. It's hell.

It's very difficult to play there. I played there last season with Real.

"But I think Didier deserves to come here and to feel the passion and the respect. I would love that. Bring the king back to Stamford Bridge."

You can see where Mourinho is coming from - Drogba was a hero at Chelsea and would without a doubt get a sensational reception at Stamford Bridge if he was to return in a Galatasaray shirt next year. 

But with the draw taking place on Monday, the Blues boss should over look the fact that Drogba "deserves" to come back to Stamford Bridge and instead hope for the easiest draw possible. 

A clash with Galatasaray would certainly prove a difficult one. 

If they miss Drogba, Mourinho's side could instead take on AC Milan, Bayer Leverkusen Olympiakos or Zenit St Petersburg.

And, in all honesty, all of these teams would represent an easier challenge than Galatasaray and Drogba. 

By all means, if the Blues draw the Turkish outfit in the semi-final stage, then Mourinho should welcome back his former forward with open arms. 

But, after the Blues worked hard to win their group, Galatasaray will be the last team they will want to face. 

Manchester United fans were given the opportunity to welcome back Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford in the round of 16 in last year's Champions League and, while it gave the United faithful the opportunity to cheer their former hero, it all turned sour in the end when he knocked them out. 

Chelsea will now be hoping to avoid a similar fate and shouldn't be so desperate to see Drogba's face at Stamford Bridge once again.
