Derby boss Lampard hopes to add Drogba to his Chelsea staff

Derby boss Frank Lampard hopes to add Didier Drogba to his staff at Chelsea.

The Sun says Lampard wants the Ivorian to join his backroom staff as a striker coach.

Drogba was part of the same successful Chelsea side which won numerous Premier League titles and were crowned Champions League winners during a golden period from 2004-2012.

He reportedly sat down for lunch with Lampard this week, after talking up his former teammates credentials for the role.

Drogba said previously: "Frank has done well with Derby, you know, taking the team to the play-off final.

“I think it is a very good option for the club [Chelsea]."
