That is the sentiment of Thibaut Courtois who believes the veteran striker, currently contracted with MLS club Montreal Impact, would be a great addition to Guus Hiddink's coaching staff at Stamford Bridge.
"I had a very good relationship with [Drogba] last year," goalkeeper Courtois said.
"He was great for the dressing room and our team.
"If he comes back as a coach it will be a great addition to all the team."
Drogba returned to Chelsea last summer in what was his second stint with the London club, helping the Blues clinch the Premier League title.
