Didier Yves Drogba Tébily (French pronunciation:; born 11 March 1978) is an Ivorian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Canadian MLS club Montreal Impact. He is the all-time top scorer and former captain of the Ivory Coast National Team. He is best known for his career at Chelsea, for whom he has scored more goals than any other foreign player and is currently the club’s fourth highest goal scorer of all time. He has been named African Footballer of the Year twice, winning the accolade in 2006 and 2009.
After playing in youth teams, Drogba made his professional debut aged 18 for ligue 2 club Le Mans, and signed his first professional contract aged 21. After finishing the 2202-03 season with 17 goals in 34 appearances for Ligue 1 side Guingamp, he moved to Olympique de Marseille, where he finished as the third highest scorer in the 2003–04 season with 19 goals and helped the club reach the 2004 UEFA Cup Final.
Didier Drogba who is recommended by the outgoing manager of Chelsea Mr Jose Mourinho to be included in the coach team for Chelsea FC. He has won the hearts of the ex manager and that of the current interim manager, and above all that of the club owner. If you sum all up, he is heartily welcome to join the club coach team. As the fourth highest goal scorer of all time in Chelsea, and his friendship or cordial relationship with both Jose Mourinho and the club owner Mr Abramovich, he is now being expected to join Chelsea’s coaching team. If this happens, he will be making history as the first African of African continent to be named as a member of the coach team for an English premier league club ever.

With the west London outfit, Drogba won four Premier Leagues, four FA Cups, three League Cups, two Community Shields, and, perhaps most famously, the Champions League in 2012.
And given Chelsea’s current plight – sitting 15th in the league with 18 points from 17 games – Drogba is keen to help out his old side.
Hiddink was appointed interim Chelsea manager until the end of the season following the sacking of Jose Mourinho last Thursday, having performed a similar role after the dismissal of former Blues boss Luiz Felipe Scolari in 2009.
With such relationship with both the owner of the club and the outgoing club manager, Jose Mourinho, and the interim manager Mr Hiddniks, Drogba could replace Hiddniks at the end of his interim tenure at the club. If this happens, Drogba will write his name in the annals of history as the first African of African continent to head an English premier league club. We wish him all the best of luck.
He is currently with a Canadian club Montreal Impact, who is now helpless in their quest to keep him. They know the love Didier Drogba has for Chelsea and his cordial relationship with Chelsea club owner. They know that he will definitely leave them to join Chelsea, and such hopelessness was explicitly expressed in the club’s tweet below
The Dutchman Hiddniks became a fans’ and players’ favourite, and struck up a warm relationship with Drogba, with whom he won the FA Cup, and he has confirmed that plans are in place to bring the Ivorian icon back.
‘I’d be happy to have him here,’ Hiddink said of the striker who scored 11 goals under him in his half-season at Chelsea last time around. ‘At the moment he is still attached to his contract in Canada. But it is intended that he’s involved.’
Drogba’s influence – should he be added to the depleted backroom staff following Mourinho’s exit – could be key to the fortunes of both Falcao and fellow striker Diego Costa. Good luck to you bro.
