Official: Hiddink Confirms Chelsea Deal For Champion’s League Winner- Announcement Imminent

John Obi MikelAfter the dismissal of Jose Mourinho from the helm at Chelsea, Didier Drogba was spotted at the stands in Stamford Bridge along with new blues boss Guus Hiddink and owner Roman Abramovich.

According to reports, the Dutch tactician wants the Chelsea legend to work with him as a part of the clubs coaching staff. But the Ivorian international is still contracted to MLS side Montreal Impact.

However reports from the US media RDS precisely claims Didier Drogba is on the verge of terminating his contract with the MLS side so that he can join Chelsea. The 37 year old former Chelsea striker had initially hinted that he wants to work with the Chelsea backroom staff.

However the Dutch tactician revealed the reason he insists on working with the Ivorian;

“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 these big hearts to connect them somehow with the club. But he’s playing for Montreal, under contract.” Hiddink said.

“All the big clubs, and the smaller ones, have these specific guys, figures, who can go into whatever they like-coach, ambassador, manager-but they must be given the opportunity to do so. They give the Chelsea brand a big image, worldwide.”

Hiddink is expected to leave Chelsea at end of the season as his appointment is only a half measure, to as an interim boss.
