Reports have emerged that Jose Mourinho’s interim successor at Chelsea, Guus Hiddink, is planning to make Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba, part of the coaching staffs at Chelsea. Drogba was spotted at the stands at Stamford Bridge, sitting between Chelsea billionaire owner, Roman Abrahmovich and Guus Hiddink in the match against Sunderland.
Reports have it that Guus Hiddink is interested in making the former Chelsea striker work with him at Stamford Bridge as a part of his coaching staffs. But at the moment, the Ivorian is currently in a contract with MLS side, Montreal Impact. Although, reports from the US suggests that the forward may terminate his contract with the US side and join Chelsea.
Drogba has previously hinted that he would like a coaching job with Chelsea. The revelation was however the beginning of rumors, linking him with a job as one of Hiddink’s assistants at Chelsea. Hiddink has revealed why he wants Drogba to work with him. “I worked with him five or six years ago and I was delighted to have such a professional in the squad.
He is a legend already in this club but also outside this club in the world. So it’s nice for guys with this big hearts to connect them somehow with the club. But he is playing for Montreal, under contract”.
“All the big clubs, and the smaller ones, have these specific guys, figures, who can go into whatever they like – coach, ambassadors, manager – but they must be given the opportunity to do so. They give the Chelsea brand a big image, worldwide”.
Guus Hiddink is expected to leave Chelsea at the end of the season, but Drogba won’t leave with him, as he is expected to become a member of the permanent coaching staffs at Chelsea.
