Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has been getting reacquainted with Stamford Bridge as he prepares for Galatasaray’s Champions League visit.
Chelsea battled to a 1-1 draw during the first leg in Turkey last month, meaning the last-16 tie is on a knife-edge.
The Ivorian, now 36, has fond memories of his time at the club, where he signed in 2005 and stayed an until 2012, signing off in style by scoring the winning penalty in the Champions League win over Bayern Munich.
‘I’m really happy to come back and see familiar faces and it’s good,’ Drogba said at a press conference on Monday evening. ‘It won’t be difficult to play. It’s a big game, a big competition and it means a lot to my team, so I will find a way to play it.
‘It’s very difficult to play against Chelsea but it will not be difficult for me to put myself into the competition.
‘I belong to Galatasaray and I need to be professional.
‘Of course there will be emotions, like the first leg, when I saw my ex-team-mates and the Chelsea fans in the stadium.
‘It was special but then there was the game and it was tough, high intensity and it think it will be the same tomorrow.’
