Reports are out claiming that Didier Drogba has played down suggestions of an emotional return to Marseille.
The Ivory Coast veteran is a free agent after leaving Premier League champions Chelsea earlier this summer and his next club is yet to be decided.
37-year old Drogba has often been asked about a possible comeback to Marseille, where he scored a remarkable 32 goals in 55 appearances back in 2003/04, but he has rubbished those claims by saying the French club lack direction.
“It’s not a question of money. I like to have a project. And Marseille, which I know well, does not have a project,” he said.
“They have sold their best players, whom they let go till the end of their contracts. I’m talking about Andre Ayew, Andre-Pierre Gignac… and they’ll lose more.
“I don’t want to go to Marseille to just play. If I go somewhere, it’s to win, and I want to win. The question has been coming up for 10 years.”
