Shanghai: Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka are back in China and the boardroom row that threatened their futures at Shanghai Shenhua has been "basically resolved", the team's head coach said on Friday.
Sergio Batista said he needed to meet Drogba to check on his physical condition before deciding whether to play him in Saturday's home match against Liaoning Whowin. The players had been away for the international break.
"Nicolas (Anelka) will start. As for the other two, Didier (Drogba) and Giovanni (Moreno), I have not seen them," he said through a translator, adding that he had been told all the players were back in China.
