Who can forget the days of Didier Drogba at Chelsea? I sure can’t. From his 150 + goals with the London club to his almost winning a Champions League by himself, Drogba left quite a legacy behind when he left Stamford Bridge.
Now, after a couple of years away, including a stop and China and a very successful stop at Galatasaray, Drogba is reunited with his former manager Jose Mourinho.
Some have heavily doubted this move, but I like it. Here’s why.
First, he is only signed to a one year contract, which means Chelsea doesn’t have to worry about the 36 year old’s health long term.
Also, Drogba is stepping into a very good team with creative midfielders and can team up with star striker Diego Costa. Had this move been made last year, the onus of goal scoring would have been on Drogba. Now, he can feed off Costa.
Finally, Drogba can still play. His Ivory Coast team was impacted by his play from the substitute bench at the World Cup and he still scored more than 20 goals with Galatasaray in a short span of time.
He might be older now, but no one still wants to see Didier Drogba running at them. As a Premier League fan, I’m excited that one of the best in EPL history is back.
