Strike star confirms Chelsea intentions

Veteran Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has revealed that he will not be retiring at the end of the season and will continue to play for the Blues into 2015/16.

The 36-year-old Ivory Coast star made a shock move back to Stamford Bridge over the summer after leaving the club in 2012.

Drogba is a hero among Chelsea fans for his goals and performances during his first stint at the club, and many were sad to see him leave after the 2012 Champions League success – he netted the winning penalty in a shootout victory over Bayern Munich.

He then spent a brief period in China with Shanghai Shenhua, before moving to Galatasaray, who released him last year.

With his years advancing it had been suggested that Drogba would end his glittering career this summer, but the African idol has admitted that he plans to stay on for the next campaign:

“Next season, I will still be a player for Chelsea,” he is quoted by The Metro.
