Look throughout the Chelsea squad at it is at the moment and one thing has become apparent to all of us - Chelsea a real lack of natural leaders. The decision to try and lure Didier Drogba back to the club makes perfect sense.

I was talking about this the other day. Think back through the last decade and our squad has been full of leaders and if anything we took that for granted. We had become so used to that influential core unit of players, each one a natural leader, that we knew when the going got tough we could rely on one or two of them to get the players going or to pull something out of the bag to get the job done.

Now, apart from John Terry, there is no one else. Petr Cech, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba have all left us and let's also not forget big players such as Michael Ballack, Ashley Cole and Ricardo Carvalho who were vastly experienced in the game have also left us through the years and those characters in the dressing room no longer exist.

We are looking around now to see if people will step up as discussed here. Players such as Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa and Gary Cahill but to me they just aren't doing it and through the turmoil of this season so far it's become more than apparent that it's a major problem now.

So to arguably alongside John Terry as the most natural leader we have ever had in Didier Drogba and his return to the club which WILL be confirmed at some stage as I had posted up here. Drogba is held in such high regard by the players, the club as a whole but most importantly of all Roman Abramovich. With reports of player un-rest and training ground bust ups it's clear we need a calming influence around the place.

We are yet to see how he would settle into the role of Assistant Manager or Coach at Chelsea alongside Guus Hiddink and it would be interesting to see if he could exert the same influence he had here as a player.

One thing is certain. Didier Drogba and other legends of the last decade or so WILL end up back at Chelsea in some capacity in the near future. For Drogba, that could be within days!
