Roberto Di Matteo has urged the Chelsea hierarchy to give Didier Drogba whatever he wants in order to keep the striker at Stamford Bridge, the Daily Mirror suggest.
The interim boss is apparently keen for the club to retain Drogba, who has been tipped to leave when his contract expires in the summer.
“He could do it for another couple of years at this level,” said Di Matteo.
“Whether he’ll be here or elsewhere, I don’t know. He’s part of the history of this club, like many players, and always will be. But the final decision is for the club to take.”
The Mirror also have an interview with Djibril Cisse, who is set to return against Tottenham today after serving a suspension and wants to atone for being sent off twice since moving to QPR.
The Frenchman said: “Mark Hughes wasn’t happy with the decisions and wasn’t happy with me.
“But you have to put your head down, listen and I have to pay him back.”
