No imminent Chelsea move for club legend Drogba

Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has dismissed possibilities of club legend Didier Drogba coming back to Stamford Bridge anytime soon.

The striker, who is currently contracted with MLS side Montreal Impact, was rumoured to be joining the Blues coaching staff this month.

However, Hiddink has rubbished those reports, saying the Ivory Coast great will not be coming to West London in a coaching role.

"In the short term, no, but in the longer-term we talked about players with a big image for this club being welcome," said Hiddink.

"There's no time issue on this so I wish him all the best now in one of his later seasons."
