Didier Drogba was awfully quiet in his highly-anticipated return to Stamford Bridge, as his Galatasaray side crashed out of the Champions League with a 2-0 second-leg loss to Chelsea. The former Blues striker and fan favorite struggled to get touches all night, but ‘The Drog’ still made sure he reminded Chelsea fans of the mark he left at the Bridge - literally!
In the first half with Chelsea already up 1-0, Drogba hit a free kick so poorly it struck a large “Drogba Legend” banner that hung in the upper tier of the Matthew Harding Stand.
Was it just a coincidence that Jose Mourinho discussed the prospect of Drogba returning to Chelsea, in any capacity, just hours earlier? Was Drogba sending a message that, yes, he indeed belonged in London? Or was it just a successful ploy by the Chelsea fans to distract Drogba with kindness and affection?
Either way, it made for a funny little moment in a not-so-funny night for Drogba.
