Drogba: Chelsea Legend To Retire At End Of Season

Didier Drogba Announces Retirement from Football Chelsea legend Drogba set to retire
Hannah Rogers | 14 November, 2017, 19:43

Drogba is now with Phoenix Rising, where he is also a part-owner, and has admitted that age is finally catching up with him when asked about the retirement question this week.

"I always say Didier Drogba and John Terry [were my favourite to play alongside], for different reasons so it's like a double-headed answer really", Lampard told Copa90.

"Ah, do you want a scoop?"

"I need time for my other projects".

It is believed he plans to following in David Beckham's footsteps and launch an MLS franchise. "Playing is good, but at 39, it slows me down a bit".

Drogba has been playing for Phoenix since the turn of the year, where he has scored 10 times in his 14 appearances.

Since leaving Chelsea, Drogba has had brief spells with Shanghai Shenhua, Galatasaray, Montreal Impact and is now with Rising FC.

In total he played 381 times for the Blues, scoring 164 times; Drogba also won the Premier League on four occasions, the FA Cup four times and netted the winning penalty when Chelsea beat Bayern Munich to win the UEFA Champions League.

In April, Drogba explained: "Roman Abramovich always made the right decision, even when it was the most hard decision".

The USL season typically begins in March of each year.

"Not everything he has done has been popular, but it has always been for the benefit of Chelsea".

"That is what I can do, sometimes take emotion out of the situation and do what is best".
