Drogba: I wish I was at Marseille


Recommended Posts

Under-fire Chelsea striker Didier Drogba says he would love to be at Marseille at the moment.

Drogba, who has been linked with a summer move following the fall-out from Chelsea's Champions League exit, has revealed that he would love to be at Marseille as the team lead Ligue 1 on goal difference with four games to play.

The former Stade Velodrome icon lost in the 2004 Uefa Cup final to Valencia in Gothenburg, and he believes it would be thrilling to be a Marseille player at the present time.

"I must confess that I really wish I was there with them right now," Drogba told France-Football.

"I envy them a lot, indeed! The atmosphere must be crazy all around the city.

"They must have a lot of fun all together. Most of all, they must make the most of it.

"As far as I am concerned, I was inches away from winning a trophy with this club and I cannot imagine what the atmosphere will be if they win silverware.

"It is going to be massive."

Sometimes during his time here I wish he was in Marseille.

He's said this time and time again about returning to Marseille, but if he was to go back there, would his ego take the fact he'd have to take a massive pay cut to play for them once more?

Whats the odds he'll be "mis-quoted" over the coming days. :rolleyes:

I don't think Drogba means he wants to switch clubs but just to be at that atmosphere of Marseille and to see them win a trophy.

Yup, spot on. He isn't saying he wants to leave and all the other stuff that will be read into this..

Doesn't once say he wants to go there, unless I'm misreading. He's merely saying he'd like to be there to witness the atmosphere because - let's be fair - they're going to be crowned Ligue Un Champions.

Didier Drogba has apparently made it his intention to leave Chelsea this summer and return to French outfit Olympique de Marseille, for whom he played prior to joining the Blues in 2004.

The player's friend, French television pundit Laurent Paganelli, has revealed that Drogba has told him he's ready to depart from Stamford Bridge in the summer, and that a return to Marseille is very appealing to the Ivory Coast international.

"I Think that Drogba is more of a priority than Trezeguet,” Paganelli told La Provence.

"I met him [Drogba] and can say he really wants to return to Marseille, and that is the right moment to bring him back. "He is human, experienced extraordinary moments here, he wants to come back. If he has to finish his career here, he will do it."

Another potential target for l'OM is Juventus striker David Trezegut, and Paganelli seems to feel that siging both is certainly a possibility for the Provencal outfit,

"Signing Drogba and Trezeguet is doable. I sincerely do not think that money is an issue. There is a special link for both of them," he concluded.
