Chelsea midfielder Mata: Drogba draw would be special for fans

Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata admits drawing Galatasaray in the Champions League would be special for fans.

Blues legend Didier Drogba is leading the line for Gala this season.

"Didier was a legend here," Mata tells the official Chelsea website.

"I guess that he would be very excited about coming back. He did a lot of great things for this club and scored a lot of very important goals. In fact, he scored probably the most important goals in the history of this club.

"It would be difficult for us, though. He is still a top player and Galatasaray are a great team, but I think for the fans and for him it would be very special. Let's see what happens."
