Didier Drogba will not be returning to Chelsea this season in any capacity, according to interim manager Guus Hiddink.
Rumours had been swirling about Drogba’s future with MLS side Montreal Impact, but the Ivory Coast striker is due to return to training with his team next month.
“In the short-term, yes (there is no prospect). But in the longer term we talked about players of a big influence or big image for this club, they are welcome. There is no time issue on this. I wish him all the best now for one of his last seasons.”
