When every Chelsea fan hears the name Didier Drogba, the only words that come into our minds are “legend” and “king”.

The Chelsea legend had a remarkable and trophy laden career in his two stints as a Chelsea player, and is eager to return to the club he calls home, this time in a coaching capacity.

Drogba has been linked with a move to Brazilian side Corinthians, but according to reports, he rejected a move to Corinthians because he is desperate to return to Chelsea in a coaching role.

He said: “I explained to him that whilst I am very honoured at their interest in me joining the club, it does not feel like the right move for me at this time.

“I would like to thank the club and all the Corinthians fans for the messages and wish you all every success for the new season.”

Reports suggest he turned down a move to Brazil because he’s interested in coming back home.
