Chelsea’s Didier Drogba hints at retirement from football
The Chelsea striker could be set to hang up his boots at the end of the season
Didier Drogba has hinted that this could be the Chelsea striker’s final season in football.
The 36-year-old returned to Stamford Bridge in the summer after initially leaving the west London club following their Champions League triumph in 2012.
However, the Ivorian has suggested that this could be his last year in the game, saying that “there is one more year to go”.
“This year, the key for me is to enjoy my football and to be with my team-mates and to win trophies,” Drogba told Chelsea TV.
“There is one more year to go so let’s do it, let’s win more trophies, let’s make history again.
“This relationship between me and the fans goes both ways, the way they show their support and the way they love me. If there is some way I love them even more because of all we achieved together, all the history.
“I have always said my first eight years here were the best years of my career. I know they enjoyed it because I did. I’m far from all the players who made history here but I’m also next to them.”
