​No Chelsea return for former striker Drogba

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has ruled out re-signing Didier Drogba on loan in the new year to help the defending Champions get out of their slump.

Drogba has scored 12 goals in as many matches since leaving joining MLS side Montreal Impact in the summer.

Drogba is Chelsea's fourth all-time leading scorer and was inspirational in the dressing room as they won the title and League Cup last term.

But Mourinho said: "Do you want me to compare the Premier League with the MLS?

Didier will always offer something to a club and the group that loves him and that he loves. No doubt about it. But will I bring him back? No."
