Drogba returns to training

DROGBA-BURNLEYLONDON, September 16-Didier Drogba has returned to training with Chelsea ahead of a possible first European outing with the club since scoring the winning goal in the 2012 Champions League final.

Drogba’s first spell with the Blues ended with him scoring the decisive penalty which defeated Bayern Munich in the final at the Allianz Arena.

He has now given manager Jose Mourinho a big boost by returning from injury sooner than expected, showing no ill effects as he trained with the Chelsea squad at their Cobham base on Tuesday.

Drogba rejoined Chelsea this summer after a spell at Galatasaray but missed Saturday’s win over Swansea because of an ankle injury which was expected to keep him out of the Group G match against Schalke on Wednesday.

Mourinho is likely to start with in-form Diego Costa up front at Stamford Bridge but Drogba may well gain a place on the bench.
