Didier Drogba will always be a welcome face at Stamford Bridge as he is a legendary figure at the club, starring in two spells at Chelsea, and he’s still fighting strong across the pond.
The Ivorian striker turns 39 next March and sees his contract with Montreal Impact end in the coming months with the close of the MLS season- and he could still finish the campaign as a champion.
Drogba’s future is set to lie away from the Canadian outfit but he told RTL he isn’t ready to hang up his boots yet, though he isn’t sure where he’ll end up.
“My contract is up with Montreal, so I’ll be free at the end of the season. I think I’ll continue. I don’t know what my reaction will be if we win the MLS,”
“I’m not tired mentally. I can stay at training for two hours going over my drills. When I have a ball at my feet, I’m still like a child.”
At some point the African icon will surely return to Stamford Bridge in a non-playing role for the side he’s won four Premier League titles with and he aims to earn all his coaching badges, possibly becoming a manager in the future.
