Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has urged the club to bring back legendary striker Didier Drogba to Stamford Bridge. The Ivorian, who is currently signed to MLS side Montreal Impact, has been strongly linked with a move back to the Blues recently. Even manager Guus Hiddink has hinted at the player’s possible third stint with the club. Latest report says his current club, Montreal Impact, have already accepted the move.
Now Courtois has joined the voice to bring back the club legend to Stamford Bridge. The Belgian goalkeeper believes that Drogba, who is under contract with MLS side until December 2016, will be a great addition to Guus Hiddink’s backroom staff.
“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.”
Meanwhile, the 23-year old believes that Blues can still have a positive year by winning the FA Cup of the Champions League.
“Obviously, if you win the FA Cup or the Champions League maybe it will still be a positive [season],” he said. “Success is a big word if you play until now not very well except the last three or four games. But still with the FA Cup or maybe the Champions League it could be a positive season if we end up in the top four or top six.
“We have to go step by step. Some teams are close together. If we beat West Brom and Everton we could be maybe eighth or ninth in a few weeks. Everything can change very fast; we just need the results.”
Chelsea will host League One club Scunthorpe United at Stamford Bridge in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday. In Champions League, they will face off against the familiar rival PSG in the round of 16 of the competition.
