Former Chelsea [LNB]manager Avram Grant has urged the club to keep hold of Didier Drogba.   [LNB]Injuries and suspension have restricted Drogba's appearances this season and the Ivory Coast striker has often hinted he would prefer to leave Stamford Bridge.   [LNB]Grant, who was sacked at the end of last season, said: 'Didier's a very nice person who has a lot of emotion. But football is a game of emotion and Drogba is a passionate player. We need to keep him like this.   [LNB][LNB] Unsettled: There has been plenty of speculation about Drogba's future[LNB]'It's not always easy with him. He's a great player, one of the best strikers in the world and very intelligent.   [LNB]'No player can be good all the time and sometimes, when you have a bad injury, it can be frustrating. When things go wrong you can say you want to leave. [LNB]'He spoke to me about this and Jose [Mourinho] before. But I'm sure he can still score a lot of goals for Chelsea. He is good for Chelsea and they are good for him.  [LNB] 'In the next three or four years I have no doubt he will become a coach.'
