Didier Drogba want to make his Last Season Special

It looks like the ongoing season is going to mark the end of Didier Drogba’s trophy-filled career at Stamford Bridge.

The Ivorian legend himself said the other day that he has only one season left now and he wants to make it special.

In a recent interview, the veteran was quoted as saying, “I have had a number of wonderful seasons over here. I don’t think I have enjoyed myself more anywhere else than at Chelsea.”

“One more season is left and hopefully, this would be the same. I am looking to have as much fun as possible with the guys and also, to clinch titles.”

“There is nothing that I haven’t won with Chelsea. But, I want to do it all over again this season. It would be so nice to be able to create history as we had done in 2012.”

Drogba has not played as the central striker for the Blues anyway since rejoining the club.

It’s Diego Costa who has been Chelsea’s main man upfront and now, there are rumours that Jose Mourinho, the manager of the side, is planning to add an emerging youngster i.e. Anderson Talisca to his attacking line.

Talisca is contracted to Benfica at this point of time. Chelsea’s rival clubs including Liverpool are also interested in the teenager who is an all round player.

Talisca is enormously effective as an attacking playmaker, but, he has shown his credentials as forward as well a few times playing for Bahia (a Brazilian club) and for Benfica.

Talisca’s arrival would mean that there is no place for Drogba in the starting XI of Chelsea and in that scenario, there is very less possibility that Mourinho would give contract extension to the Ivorian at the end of the season.
