Drogba still loves Marseille

Unsettled Chelsea striker Didier Drogba admits he feels "at home" at Marseille and would love to play for them again in the future.

The Ivorian striker had left the club in 2004 after spending just one season in Marseille, when a £24 million fee took him from Stade VĂ©lodrome to Stamford Bridge.

It is understood that Drogba, after receiving permission from Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari, travelled by private jet to Marseille, to mark the 10th anniversary of the club’s in-house television station, on Monday when the players had the day off.

He returned later the same evening and reported for training with the rest of the first-team squad on Tuesday.

"It was inconceivable that I miss this (event)," he told French newspaper La Provence.

"Everyone knows how much I am attached to this club and this city. It's hard to find the words to express the relationship which exists between the supporters, the Marseillais and myself.

"I still love this club - that will never change whatever happens. I still feel at home here.

"It unfinished business with Marseille. It's hard to know if one day we will have the chance to finish this adventure, maybe in a better way.

"Nothing is impossible. I am very well placed to know that.

"But it clearly isn't the right moment for me to speak about a possible return to Marseille.

"I have a lot of respect for Chelsea and as long as I'm under contract with them, I can't say anything.

"If something is made to happen, and I don't know under what conditions, Marseille are going to have to get in contact with Chelsea.

"But be careful, I am not opening the door to an eventual transfer, I am simply explaining the situation. I have missed the last two games and I am keen to return to my best and play regularly."
