Montreal Impact striker Didier Drogba believes that playing in the MLS is more challenging than playing in the Premier League, adding that he would like to return to Chelsea as a manager one day.

Ivorian striker Didier Drogba has said that the MLS is more challenging than the English Premier League and will soon be one of the best domestic competitions in world football.

​”People think it’s easy to play there, believe me it’s harder than playing in the Premier League because of the travel,” Drogba told Reuters.

​”Because of the travel, you can stay at the airport three or four hours if you miss your flight.

“That’s what makes it hard so as you can see there’s not many away wins. And also of course there are also some very good players in this league.

Drogba joined the Canadian club on a free transfer this summer from the English side Chelsea and has been consistent for them so far.

​“It’s a growing league (MLS) and I think it’s going to be one of the most important and decisive leagues in the world in a few years,” Drogba added.

​Besides the MLS, Drogba has said that he would like to return to Chelsea one day as manager or any role.

“I want to give back to the club which has given so much to me. I have agreed that with the club directors,” he told BBC Africa.

“Why not manager? Why not sporting director, trainer at the academy or maybe an advising role for strikers?”

Drogba scored 12 goals in 14 games this season and helped his side to qualify for the play-offs by finishing third in the Eastern Conference.
