The striker is close to current Blues boss Rafa Benitez.

But he told The Sun: “Mourinho is loved at Chelsea, he built a team that won titles and it’s normal they remember him for what he was, someone important here.

“But also in every game they remember Drogba and show a lot of love for Frank Lampard and the same for John Terry. When Abramovich arrived he built a team and they were the visible faces, the people who made Chelsea champions. Mourinho is among the Chelsea idols.”
