Didier Drogba has admitted a return to Chelsea as a coach one day is possible.

Speaking to the media ahead of Galatasaray’s Champions League second leg tie against Chelsea on Tuesday evening at Stamford Bridge, the Ivorian offered a glimpse of what could follow once he retires from playing professional football.

After reports linked him with a job at Chelsea in a non-playing role earlier this year, Drogba said coaching is something he would be interested in, to the point where a return to Chelsea is plausible.

The former-Blues star is a legend in that particular part of west London after helping the club to three Premier League titles and a Champions League trophy in his final game for the club.

So when asked by Daily Telegraph journalist Henry Winter whether he would consider a return to the Blues as a coach, Drogba said: “Of course - but not now. I still want to play.”

The 36-year-old forward remains a key part of Roberto Mancini’s plans in Turkey, and will be going all out to ensure Galatasaray give Chelsea as good a game as possible tomorrow evening.

The tie is currently poised at 1-1 after the first game in Istanbul, with Chelsea holding the slight advantage by virtue of their away goal.

But back to Drogba, what do you think Chelsea fans - would you like him back at Stamford Bridge as part of the coaching set-up?

Maybe even manager? Have your say below…
