"I am not 100 per cent sure what the intentions of Barcelona are, but Drogba would be an excellent player for the team," he told the Daily Star. "It would not be a problem if he arrived at the club, but extra help to return this team to where it should be, the best in the world.
"I am a friend of Drogba and I know that he has always been interested in playing in Spain and in Barcelona. A team with Messi, Henry, Drogba and me is possible on the pitch without anybody having to leave the club. It would be a super-offensive team.
"During the African Nations Cup I have heard about the comments of Drogba and Barcelona and those are normal. Any player desires to be at the best club in the world.
"I respect my team-mates but a man like Drogba is positive for any club. If the directors demand my opinion then I would be in favour of the move."
