Costa Comes Back from the Hospital:
Drogba May not be fully fit:
His not so convincing Deputy would be none other than club legend Didier Drogba, who recently re-opened his goal scoring account for the Blues’ in the Champions League after that fateful night in Munich. Hazard revealed that Drogba had asked him for the penalty that he converted for his first goal of the second coming. Nonetheless, Drogba played for most of the game and it was frankly his body that somewhat let him down. The drive, the desire could always be seen in the Ivorian. His ankle seems to have another ideas though. Drogba recently had a conversation about it and revealed that it is not completely comfortable.
However, he also hinted in the very same interview that he looks forward to visiting and playing at Old Trafford. Drogba took his very own dig at the beleaguered, mega-legendary club:
“Maybe now it is United who need to learn to catch up with us — the other way round from when I first came to the club. But that’s why I say this club is very special, because in our first season together, we had to win. I don’t know if it’s like that at other clubs, but we had to win.
“We had big expectations from the start. You have to win at this club.”
Let us hope that Drogba can get back to his best and revive memories of the 2007 FA Cup final. Meanwhile, a certain Frenchman, Loic Remy also harbours hopes of a return to fitness just before the game. Mourinho perhaps has a card or two up his sleeve, methinks.
