The careers of Didier Drogba and Jose Mourinho went interstellar at the same time. Mourinho had performed miracles with Porto, winning first the UEFA cup, followed by the Champion’s league before moving to Chelsea in 2004.
Drogba arrived at Chelsea the same year and the two never looked back. Drogba scored the winning penalty in this season’s Champion’s league final to give him his 12th winner’s medal in a Chelsea shirt, while Mourinho has been successful wherever he went. He has won 13 trophies in three different countries since he signed for Roman Abramovich.
Now the pair may be reunited, as Mourinho wants to give Drogba another chance at glory and, hopefully, another Champion’s league win. Real Madrid are desperate to lift the top European trophy again, and Drogba wants a repeat of the elation he has just experienced for the Blues.
Shanghai Shenhua have offered the Ivorian hit man megabucks in order to take him to China, but Drogba thinks that he has a few years of top class football in his legs before going out to pasture. Anybody who saw his heroics this year would probably agree.
It would be a shame to lose a legend like Didier to China where he will never be heard of again. Just as long as he does not end up doing to Chelsea what he has been doing to other teams for the last eight years
