The 36-year-old took the armband on Saturday but couldn’t prevent the Premier League title contenders from slipping to a 4-2 defeat to League One side Bradford in the FA Cup.
Having returned to the club last summer, he penned a one-year deal to return to Stamford Bridge, though his future is still uncertain.
But he has reiterated his desire to stay put in west London, stating he just wants to help out be it as a player, coach, or ambassador.
“When you have achieved so much and won so many trophies like we have done in the past 10 years, that creates something special,” Drogba said.
“I hope, and the club makes me believe, I am part of this big family, so we are going to find the best thing for both of us to promote the club in the best way.
“When I left this club (the first time), I was saying that I had done everything I wanted to do, but I think now that I did not do everything, I think there is more to do.
“I love this club and would love to be part of this club for the future, with the new players.”
