DIDIER DROGBA has revealed he has returned to Chelsea for one reason – trophies.
Drogba sealed his Stamford Bridge comeback on a one-year deal last week.
And the Blues legend revealed he is back for more silverware in a heartfelt message to Chelsea fans.
“I’m not coming here to break records, I just want to win trophies,” Drogba said.
“Five years is a long time not to win the Premier League, so I want to win it. To lift the Premier League trophy is a fantastic feeling and we haven’t experienced it for a few years, it’s too long for a club like ours.
“I think the title race is going to be like it has been these last few years, all the big clubs will be involved and fighting until the end.
“There are more teams capable of winning the league, which makes it interesting in terms of pressure and different scenarios.
“I missed the Premier League, which for me is the best in the world. It’s true the German league is on the way up but the English league has been the best over the last decade and I’m really looking forward to playing the first game.”
Drogba spent two years away from Chelsea at Shanghai Shenhua and Galatasaray and admits Jose Mourinho played a big part in his return.
“It’s amazing to be back, a great feeling,” he added.
“I’m happy to be back here and I’m looking forward to seeing the best fans.
“It was an easy decision to make, it’s very difficult to say no to Jose and to Chelsea. I have so many good memories with the club so when the opportunity came up it was easy for me.
“He said to me that a player like me, who has history with the club, should come back one day.
He said I have to come back and I agree with him because, even if I left, I was still a Chelsea player because of the eight years I spent here. No offence to the teams I was with during those two years but that’s just the way it is.
“He’s the one who gave me a chance to play in the Premier League. We won so many trophies together and so many matches on the pitch. His relationship is not only with me, it’s with all the players who were here from the beginning of the story. It’s quite emotional but the most important thing is that we want to win, win, win.
“I think the best thing I can bring to this club and team will be to stay the same as I was during my first spell here. I don’t have to change, everybody knows my character, my attitude and my mentality.
“They know if I’m here it’s not just to smile and thank people for welcoming me back. I want to win, I want to share my desire and will to win games. The squad is young but to get the best results you have to push yourself.”
