John Terry hopes Didier Drogba will remain with Chelsea next season

John Terry wants Chelsea to keep Didier Drogba at the club next season by offering him a new deal.

After returning to Stamford Bridge last summer, the 37-year-old has played an important role in helping Chelsea win the Premier League this season.

He has netted seven goals in all competitions for the champions but is out of contract in the summer.

“Let’s hope he’s in the camp next season,” Terry is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror. “He’s got a massive part to play on and off the field.

"He's been great because he's had to be patient. Ideally he would have liked a bit more game-time. But Diego Costa hit the ground running, scoring a lot of goals.”

With Costa out injured recently, Drogba has started four of the last five Premier League games and looks set to continue up front in the final few matches of the campaign.

Fellow Chelsea veteran Terry praised the striker's contribution both on and off the pitch during the title-winning campaign.

“Didier’s experience and the way he speaks before the games, after defeats when you’re down and you need an old head to help,” he said.

“At times we’ve been worried after defeats and he’s said that it happens and we’ll bounce back and be alright. When you hear that from someone like him, everyone takes it on board.”
