SPORT:“Chelsea will struggle without Drogba, I am London blue” – Mourinho

Real Madrid manager, Jose Mourinho, has said that Chelsea will struggle to win games without Didier Drogba. The Ivorian left the club on a free transfer to join Chinese side, Shenhua Shanghai, after scoring 157 goals for the Stamfor Bridge side, including the winning penalty in the Champions League final.

Fernando Torres has not convinced a lot of doubters this season and Mourinho, is of the opinion that Drogba cannot be replaced.

“I believe Drogba is the big difference for them. I don`t think you can replace him. You can buy top players and invest like Chelsea did, but there is only one Drogba, in the Premiership and Chelsea’s history,” he told Sky Sports News.

“Drogba means crucial moments. The final, a top match, Drogba is there. When the team is losing at home, Drogba is there. Chelsea will miss Drogba and Drogba will mean a few less points. But the team is good, with good players and they are European champions.”

When he was asked about a potential return to the London side, he did affirm he will definitely return to England, after his time in Spain and gave a clue that it might be back to Chelsea.

“In England I am blue. I will push a little but when I watch matches on TV,” the 49-year-old said. “I cannot deny what is clear in my mind. After Real Madrid, England, that`s for sure. I keep saying the same, I know clearly.
In England (I could manage) everyone. I am blue, but I am London blue. I am a professional.”
