Mourinho rules out Drogba return on loan

These quotes are from before the Liverpool match, technically, but our latest loss probably doesn't have much of an impact on our thinking in this regard.  If anything, it moves us closer to buying somebody who can properly create, contribute, and finish in attack.  Didier Drogba may be a great player and an even greater man, but singlehandedly saving our season is probably beyond even his powers.

"Do you want me to compare the Premier League with the MLS?"

"Didier will always offer something to a club and the group that loves him and that he loves. No doubt about it. But will I bring him back? No."

-Jose Mourinho; source: Express

Didier and his fellow Montreal Impact chums will be taking on Columbus Crew in the first leg of the MLS Cup Eastern Conference semifinals on Sunday.  The Chelsea legend has 12 goals in his 12 appearances in MLS and his success there had reignited these rumors of him potentially coming back to Chelsea (or Bologna in Serie A?) on loan during the offseason.
