Jose Mourinho made a prediction while talking to the press ahead of Galatasaray's date with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge that Chelsea legend who now plays for the Turkish giants will one day return to Chelsea.
"He is one of the most important players in the history of this club. All we Chelsea supporters agree with that."
"We don't say he is the most important because it's not fair for other people who were at the same level and were of the same generation."
"His return has to happen one day, when I don't know. As a player, as a coach, as an ambassador, next year, in four or five years, 10 years, I don't know,"
"But when a person gives so much to a club and a club represents so much to a person, as in this case, I think he has to be back one day."
Mourinho was quick to admit that it isn't the right time to discuss the Ivorian's imminent return to the Bridge and claimed that Drogba remains one of the best strikers in the world.
"We know he is a free agent at the end of the season but this is not the right moment to speak about this,"
"Is he the same player at 36 that he was at 26? I think nobody is but he's one of the best strikers in the world, that's for sure."
Drogba will be out to knock his beloved Chelsea out of the Champions League on Tuesday but apparently almost every Chelsea fan will also want him to return one day.
