Chelsea captain John Terry says that he expects big things from Didier Drogba on his return to the Premier League this season.
The Ivory Coast striker, who is back at Stamford Bridge after signing a one-year deal last month, scored 157 goals in 342 games in his first spell with the club.
After seeing him up close in training Terry has been impressed with what he has seen telling Chelsea TV:
“Didier’s still the same. He’s been a nightmare to play against in training. He’s still strong, sharp and hungry.”
“It’s important Didier is here because he brings that mentality of wanting to win every day.
“That rubs off on people like Kurt Zouma and the other young players.
“It’s time for these players to continue to keep winning trophies for this club and keep the fans and owner happy.
“If I was a Chelsea fan I’d be impressed from what I have seen so far from Diego, Cesc, Filipe and all the boys that have come in like Kurt as well.”
It will be interesting to see how Drogba handles being a role player this season, as Diego Costa will start the bulk of the games. But if used right, Drogba could be a devastating super sub for Jose Mourinho to put in the last 20 minutes of games, especially if Chelsea are chasing a goal to tie or win the game.
