Didier Drogba believes Jose Mourinho's passion for Chelsea could mean he returns for a second spell in charge at Stamford Bridge this summer.

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, who is set to line up for Galatasaray against Mourinho's Real Madrid tonight in the Champions League, suspects the Portuguese manager has "unfinished business" with the Blues.

And the Ivory Coast frontman, who converted the clinching spot-kick in last season's Champions League final penalty shoot-out, claims Mourinho returning to west London would be an arrangement that suits everyone.

Drogba, quoted in several newspapers, said: "I think for the club it is the best solution to bring Jose back.

"The fans want him back. He loves Chelsea. Because you want to rebuild a team and to give them the strength we had a few years ago, he could be the right person.

"He is a winner and is close to the players. He went to Inter and is at Real Madrid but is still talking about Chelsea, so he loves this club."

Mourinho had three years in charge at Chelsea in his first spell and has been strongly linked with a second stint in charge once interim boss Rafael Benitez departs in the summer.

Mourinho had success with Inter Milan and Real Madrid since leaving the Premier League, but Drogba said: "I don't think he has got over Chelsea and they haven't got over him.

"When he came he brought success; we won league titles back to back with some great football and the only thing he didn't win was the Champions League. Maybe that is one of the reasons why he might want to come back. It is unfinished business."

Drogba, 35, may also be interested in joining Mourinho at Chelsea in some capacity, should club owner Roman Abramovich pursue a deal for the manager.

Drogba, who was among Mourinho's first signings at Chelsea in 2004, said: "Let me finish at Galatasaray first and then we will talk about that."

Drogba signed an 18-month deal with the Turkish side in January.

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
