Drogba: Can see Mourinho returning to Ch

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.
