Drogba nervy ahead of Blues return

Last Updated: Tue, 18 Mar 2014 07:48

Didier Drogba admits he is feeling nervous ahead of his return to Stamford Bridge tonight when Galatasaray face Chelsea.

The Ivorian spent eight years in London, winning three Premier League titles, although his most iconic triumph came in 2012 when, with his final kick for the Blues, he scored the decisive penalty to see them win the Champions League for the first time in their history.

Tuesday's last-16 second leg looks extremely well poised, with the sides currently tied at 1-1 following their first meeting in Istanbul.

Drogba admits he doesn't know quite what to expect heading into his first game back at his old stomping ground.

"First of all I was happy to play against my ex-club, against my friends. But at the same time it is a very special moment because I do not know what my reaction will be," he told UEFA.com. "You know that I spent eight years at Chelsea, so I really don't know, I am quite apprehensive about it."

"'It's the club where I experienced everything. It allowed me to get closer to the best players in the world."
