Drogba: 'I couldn't turn down chance to work with Jose'

DIDIER DROGBA will begin his second spell at Chelsea next season after agreeing a one-year deal with Jose Mourinho's side.

"It was an easy decision - I couldn't turn down the opportunity to work with Jose again," Drogba said.

"Everyone knows the special relationship I have with this club and it has always felt like home to me.

"My desire to win is still the same and I look forward to the opportunity to help this team.
