HE'S BACK!

Here he is. The man himself. Drogba won a Champions League, three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and two League Cups during his eight years at Stamford Bridge. Reckon he's got another couple of trophies left in him?

MOURINHO REACTION

The Special One clearly still has huge faith in the 36-year-old to cut it at the top level. Mourinho said: "He’s coming because he’s one of the best strikers in Europe. I know his personality very well and I know if he comes back he’s not protected by history or what he’s done for this club previously. He is coming with the mentality to make more history."

DROGBA REACTION

He told the club's official website: "It was an easy decision - I couldn't turn down the opportunity to work with Jose again. Everyone knows the special relationship I have with this club and it has always felt like home to me. ‘My desire to win is still the same and I look forward to the opportunity to help this team. I am excited for this next chapter of my career."

MOURINHO ON DROGBA

"We want to win matches and win titles and Didier is one of the best strikers in Europe. He is still very adapted to the needs of the Premier League and we are thinking about it in a non-emotional way. If you bring him back it is not because he is Didier or scored the most important goal in the history of Chelsea, or because I read I need an assistant, no. If I bring him back - and the decision has to be made soon - it is because as a player he has qualities to make the team stronger."
