CHELSEA legend Didier Drogba is making a return to Stamford Bridge – to play in Soccer Aid 2019.
The four-time Premier League winner will take on England as part of the World XI side.
He will be one of the four professionals on show in the charity match, taking place on June 16.
Drogba said: “I am very excited to be coming back to Stamford Bridge to play in Soccer Aid for Unicef.
“I am passionate about all children having access to healthcare and education, which is key to Unicef’s work around the world.
“I’m delighted that my foundation and UNICEF are planning a project together in Cote D’Ivoire.
“Together we can help make a real difference to so many children’s lives and have a greater impact than ever before.”
PIERS MORGAN TO MANAGE
Drogba posed for a photo with current Ivory Coast winger Wilfried Zaha, which the Crystal Palace star uploaded to Twitter.
And Drogba will be able to drop in to say hello in a few months again when he comes over for Soccer Aid.
The former Blues forward will be joined by world-record sprinter Usain Bolt, who will be up against an England side managed by Sam Allardyce and Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid.
Harry Redknapp is joined by Piers Morgan in managing the Soccer Aid World XI.
Jamie Redknapp, Mark Wright, Ben Shephard and Joe Wicks were also confirmed to be lining up for England.
More star names will be announced in the coming weeks.
