Chelsea’s past and present collided when star winger Eden Hazard uploaded a selfie club legend Didier Drogba on his Instagram profile.
Drogba, who played for the Blues from 2004-2012 and then from 2014-15, is widely regarded as the greatest Chelsea striker ever.
The Ivorian scored over 100 goals for the Premier League giants and his first spell in particular, was one which bought the club much silverware.
Drobga won the the FA Cup four times, the Premier League and the League Cup thrice and the big prize of European football-the UEFA Champions League once to depart Stamford Bridge a legend.
Spells in the Chinese Super League, Turkish Super League followed before Drogba returned for one final season with Chelsea. No longer at his peak, Drobga still managed to lift the Premier League title one final time before moving to MLS side Montreal Impact for two seasons.
The 39-year-old was last seen playing for USL team Phoenix Rising, of which he is a co-owner, and managed to hog the headlines with a memorable long-range free-kick.
Chelsea fans will hope his presence rubbed off on Hazard, who is on the verge of a comeback from an ankle surgery.
The 26-year-old Belgian winger, star of the current Chelsea side, is set to feature against Leicester City on Saturday, but it remains to be seen if manager Antonio Conte will opt to start him after a three-month absence. Hazard did, however, get some minutes for Belgium during the international break and much to the relief of his club, emerged unscathed.
The Blues, defending champions, lost their opening game against Burnley but recovered in style to notch back-to-back wins against Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea to lie sixth in the league table.
