Courtois backs coaching move for Chelsea legend Drogba

Didier Drogba would be more than welcomed if he opted to take a coaching role with Chelsea.

That is the sentiment of Thibaut Courtois who believes the veteran striker, currently contracted with MLS club Montreal Impact, would be a great addition to Guus Hiddink's coaching staff at Stamford Bridge.

"I had a very good relationship with [Drogba] last year," goalkeeper Courtois said.

"He was great for the dressing room and our team.

"If he comes back as a coach it will be a great addition to all the team."

Drogba returned to Chelsea last summer in what was his second stint with the London club, helping the Blues clinch the Premier League title.
