Drogba really should have waited until it was all over before joining Chelsea love-in

KEVIN KILBLANE: Didier Drogba did a lap of honour before the warm-up (the warm-up!) and was presented with a silver boot, followed by another lap of honour. Then, just before kick-off, he spotted Jose Mourinho by the dug-out and rushed over to embrace him.

As Fernando Torres turns 30 is it time he returned to Atlético Madrid? | Tom Bryant

The £50 million man has struggled with successive managers, but could Diego Simeone get him back on track in MadridIn the week of Fernando Torres's birthday, it can't have been much of a present to see Didier Drogba back at Chelsea. The Ivorian's visit with his current club Galatasaray brought with it tributes from José Mourinho, hugs from his former teammates and misty-eyed pre-match reminiscences. All around Stamford Bridge banners still hang that proclaim Drogba as one of the greatest to wear Chelsea blue, and few fans would have begrudged the old warhorse one last goal at the ground....

Hazard lights up the Premier League but like Drogba, he has never won player of the month. So, will he ever join this list of 181 players?

SAM CUNNINGHAM: Jose Mourinho revealed last week that he finds it hilarious that Eden Hazard, who again dazzled against Galatasaray last night, is yet to be named the Premier League's player of the month. But the Portuguese shouldn't be surprised. For all the praise he lavished on Didier Drogba, as well as the former Chelsea striker's legendary status at Stamford Bridge, he never won the award either.

Reunion man Didier Drogba fails to do justice to fans' legendary love | Barney Ronay

The Chelsea supporters warmly greeted the return of their former totemic striker but the Galatasaray man is not the formidable force he once wasAs is often the case with overblown emotional homecomings, Didier Drogba's return to Stamford Bridge was in the end something of a non-event. Chelsea were simply too slick for a limited Galatasaray team, who were stifled in the centre of midfield and forced into wary retreat by the nimble movement of the excellent Eden Hazard and ever willing Willian as Chelsea ran out 2-0 winners on the night to reach the Champions League quarter-finals. Drogba,...

Chelsea 2-0 Galatasaray: key clashes from Champions League second leg

Eden Hazard has Emmanuel Eboué gasping in his vapour trail while Didier Drogba's impotence is matched by Roberto ManciniMourinho v ManciniRoberto Mancini had suggested his team's toils in the first leg had been less about lineups and formations and were born more of mindsets, yet he had still tweaked his personnel before the interval and his system before the end. This time would apparently be different: he required a quicker, more aggressive start with the tie still effectively in the balance, and yet the same slackness crept in. The Italian chuntered away on the touchline, a picture of...
