Jose Mourinho has admitted that Roman Abramovich will have the final say over Didier Drogba’s Chelsea future, according to the Express.
The veteran forward returned to Stamford Bridge in the summer, having originally left the club soon after scoring the winning penalty in the 2012 Champions League final over Bayern Munich.
He scored his one hundred and sixty-fourth Blues goal in Wednesday evening’s 3-1 win over Leicester City, a result which moved the league leaders to within touching distance of their first Premier League title in five years.
The former Ivory Coast international has played thirty-eight times in all competitions this season, scoring seven times, and won his tenth major trophy with the club last month after Mourinho’s men beat Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup final.
With Diego Costa and Loic Remy still injury doubts, Drogba is set to start against Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon, and can be backed at 9/2 to get the first goal of the game.
