Didier Drogba Announces Retirement from Football

14 November, 2017, 18:00 | Author: Cecil Buchanan

World footballing icon Didier Drogba has announced he will be retiring from playing at the end of the current American season.

Didier Drogba appeared on French radio station RMC Sport on Monday and had a fairly long conversation with Christophe Dugarry, the former French striker.

The 39-year-old is now playing for American club Phoenix Rising, who he has netted 10 goals for in 14 appearances since arriving at the turn of the year.

After a two-year absence, Drogba returned to Stamford Bridge to reunite with former boss Jose Mourinho and help the Blues win the Premier League title.

"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.

Drogba spent the 2016-17 season in the MLS with Montreal Impact. I need to have time for my other projects.

Drogba has turned out for a total of eight clubs in a decorated career at the top, with his finest work coming in two spells with Chelsea. "It's good to play, but at 39 [age] holds me back a bit".

He proved that he still had that natural killer instinct in front of goal by netting 10 goals in 14 appearances before Rising were knocked out of the play-offs by Swope Park Rangers.

"I think that is what I can learn from him".
