Chelsea striker Didier Drogba wants former manager Guus Hiddink to take charge of Ivory Coast's World Cup campaign.

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba wants former manager Guus Hiddink to take charge of Ivory Coast's World Cup campaign.

The Sun says the Chelsea superstar has spoken to his former Stamford Bridge boss about replacing under-fire Ivory Coast chief Vahid Halilhodjic in a short-term deal.

Drogba forged a strong bond with Hiddink when he replaced Luiz Felipe Scolari for a short stint at Chelsea.

Russia missed out on a World Cup place in the play-offs, leaving Hiddink free to take another job.
