Didier Drogba, the Chelsea striker, will try not to let his heart rule his head when he makes his eagerly awaited return to the Stade Velodrome for the Champions League clash against Marseille.

Drogba spent only one season at the French cub, but made an unforgettable impact as he helped the club to the Uefa Cup final in 2004.

He joined Chelsea in the same year, but said later he had wanted to stay at Marseille for the remainder of his career.

"I am a bit overwhelmed by all this but it’s OK," the Ivory Coast striker, right, told the French champions’ website. "I try not to mix everything but I am so overwhelmed."
