Following the sacking of Jose Mourinho, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has summoned Blues legend Didier Drogba back to Stamford Bridge, Jeune Afrique revealed on Friday.
The Impact Montreal striker, who is on his off-season break, was in Abidjan when he received the phone call from the Russian oligarch.
“He is happy to be able to return to Chelsea,” a close source told Jeune Afrique.
“It is the club of his heart, even if he had felt betrayed by José Mourinho, who didn’t honour all his commitments to him when he came back for the 2014-2015 season.”
The 37-year-old played for the Blues from 2004 to 2012 and during the 2014-15 successful campaign, winning more than ten major trophies including the prestigious UEFA Champions League in 2012.
