The 36-year-old scored the winning penalty to give Chelsea their first Champions League trophy back in 2012, earning him iconic status with the Blues.

Now Mourinho hopes that Drogba’s influence will give his side some impetus ahead of next season’s Premier League campaign.

    Fantastic move. Should never have been allowed to leave. Forget his penalty he single handedly dragged the blues back into the game in normal time.
    His character, and experience will be vital in uniting the dressing room.
