Chelsea’s newly appointed manager Guus Hiddink was present in the stands as the Blues defeated Sunderland 3-1 at Stamford Bridge yesterday. He even introduced himself to the Chelsea players on the pitch following the final whistle. Meanwhile, Chelsea legend Didier Drogba was curiously present all along with Hiddink prompting to speculation that the striker might be on his way to his third stint with the club.
Drogba is still contracted to MLS team Montreal Impact, but Hiddink has confirmed the speculations that the Ivorian will be heading back to Stamford Bridge in near future.
Though this time it will be in coaching capacity; he said: “I’d be happy to have him here. At the moment, he is still attached to his contract in Canada. But it is intended that he’s involved.”
Drogba returned to Stamford Bridge last season and helped Jose Mourinho’s team won the Premier League by scoring four goals in 28 league appearances for the club.
This move from the London club could be aimed at winning back the support of their fans considering the backlash club faced from the fans following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.
