Mourinho: ‘Drogba to stay at Chelsea after retirement’

FANTASTIC: Drogba (PA)

FOLLOWING LAST night’s 3-0 drubbing of Tottenham, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho revealed that Didier Drogba is “going to stay” at the club once he hangs up his boots.

Speaking after the convincing Premier League win, in which the 36-old-year Ivorian scored, the Portuguese manager said: “The important thing is he is here and will finish his career with Chelsea.

“It looks, for me, that he's going to stay doing other things when he finishes his career.”

Drogba, who left Chelsea in 2012 after scoring the winning penalty in the Champions League win over Bayern Munich, rejoined the Blues in the summer following stints in China and Turkey.

Mourinho paid further tribute the West African, who has bagged five goals since his return to Stamford Bridge.

“It's remarkable," the manager said. "First of all, he's a team player.

“He's not selfish, not vain. He's a humble guy who plays for the team, fights for the team. He's fantastic.

“I was expecting exactly this. I played against him at Real Madrid and I could feel the kind of potential he still has.”
