Courtois backs Drogba for coaching role

Like the sun rises in the morning and sets in the evening, it’s practically a guaranteed certainty that Didier Drogba will return to Stamford Bridge at some point in the future.

If and when he does, there’s at least one key first-team player backing him for success as a coach, with the Blues apparently in talks over the striker returning for a third stint.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has revealed his belief that Drogba would be a great addition to the team as a coach, highlighting the benefit he offered the dressing room last time around.

"I had a very good relationship with him last year. He was great for the dressing room and our team," Courtois said.

"If he comes back as a coach it will be a great addition to all the team."

Here's arguably Drogba's greatest Chelsea moment:

Mourinho ready to move on

Meanwhile, the camp of former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho are purportedly growing increasingly frustrated with the managerial situation at Manchester United.

ESPN claim Mourinho’s representatives expected more movement regarding their client potentially replacing Van Gaal but, so far, no dice.

Hazard update

Elsewhere, it’s good news on the injury front concerning Eden Hazard, who, according to reports, won’t be out for as long as first feared.

The Belgium international left the fray early on during the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace at the weekend and the concerns had focused around a potential groin injury.

On that note, who could forget this:

Hazard, however, underwent scans yesterday and they confirmed there had been no significant damage done to the area.
