Cote d’Ivoire striker, Didier Drogba has re-signed a one-year deal with his former English club, Chelsea.

The 36-year-old won 10 trophies at Chelsea from 2004 till he left in 2012. He is now a free agent after leaving Galatasaray.

Chelsea Manager, Jose Mourinho had earlier said the transfer market was closed for the club and all deals were concluded but said a few days later that the forward belongs at Stamford Bridge.

After the transfer, Drogba told Chelsea’s official site: “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 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, who joined Chelsea from Marseille for £24m in July 2004, scored 157 goals for the club in 341 appearances and won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups and a Champions League during his spell at Stamford Bridge.
