Marko Marin urges Chelsea to keep hold of Drogba, Di Matteo

New Chelsea signing Marko Marin wants both manager Roberto di Matteo and striker Didier Drogba to stay.

Marin, who has signed a five-year deal with the newly-crowned Champions League winners, believes Di Matteo should be given the Chelsea job on a permanent basis.

"I hope the coach will stay because he is a great coach," said the 23-year-old German playmaker.

"I have met him a couple of times and we held positive discussions."

And on Drogba he added: "It would be great if he stayed because he is a world-class player.

"He's a big part of the team and he has done a lot for Chelsea."
