Fulham boss Roy Hodgson isn't surprised former club Inter Milan want to sign Chelsea striker Didier Drogba. Drogba, 30, is desperate to leave London and Fulham boss Hodgson, who had two spells in charge at Inter, believes Jose Mourinho could crack open the champagne if he gets his man.

He said: "Jose Mourinho knows him and his qualities very well.

"Sometimes as a manager when you are assessing players you see only what you see from the stands but if you have worked with a player you know exactly what you are getting.

"We all know Didier Drogba's qualities."
