Chelsea completes re-signing of Didier Drogba

The scorer of the most important goal in Chelsea’s history is how Jose Mourinho described him this week and on Friday a deal was completed to bring him back to his spiritual football home. Didier Drogba is a Blue once more.

At 36 his powers may have diminished a little, but Drogba is someone who remains valuable to a man of Mourinho’s considerable ambition.

In a season when the Portuguese wants to guide Chelsea to a third Barclays Premier League title under his leadership, a player who was so central to the first two will certainly be useful to have around.

Clearly, Mourinho values Drogba in the same way Sir Alex Ferguson liked to have players such as Ryan Giggs at Old Trafford. Not just for his experience but for his desire to see the club succeed; a desire that the younger players can draw on.

In keeping with Chelsea’s policy for older players, Drogba has signed a one-year contract.

Mourinho, who revealed his desire to sign Drogba for a second time in Austria on Thursday, said on Friday: ‘He’s coming because he’s one of the best strikers in Europe.
'I know his personality very well and I know if he comes back he’s not protected by history or what he’s done for this club previously. He is coming with the mentality to make more history.’
In eight years he won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups and the Champions League.
