Didier Drogba wants to down Chelsea

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba says he is determined to bring misery to Stamford Bridge when he returns there in March.

The Ivory Coast international will likely be in the the Galatasaray starting XI to face the Blues and his former manager Jose Mourinho when the teams meet in the first leg of the Champions League last 16 in Istanbul next month.

The second leg at Stamford Bridge will take place three weeks later and Drogba is hopeful the Turkish champions have something to build on when they travel to west London because he believes he can score with his eyes closed.

"Stamford Bridge is my house. I could score there even with my eyes closed," he is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

"It is not going to be easy because I know this team, the manager and players. It is going to be very very difficult but this is football and you never know.

"First, we need to do something in İstanbul. İf we want to believe in qualification, we need to do something in İstanbul and have to take good result."

Whatever Drogba does, he is unlikely to do anything that will stop him from getting a rousing reception from the Chelsea faithful, as he has already secured his legend with the club.

The 35-year-old left on a free transfer in 2012 after eight seasons at Stamford Bridge, in which he scored 157 goals and won ten trophies, the most memorable of which was the 2012 Champions League in his final game for the club.
