French club Olympique Marseille have admitted they attempted to lure Chelsea star Didier Drogba back to the club in the summer.

Drogba is one of Marseille’s favourite sons after scoring 32 goals in 55 appearances in the 2003/04 season and president Jean-Claude Dassier said the club tried to get him back to the Stade Velodrome recently.

The Blues turned down the advances but Dassier said the club may return with another bid sometime down the track.

“We even tried to bring in Drogba, but this has not been possible," Dassier told L'Equipe. "We'll see, you should never give up in life."
