Chelsea legend and Montreal Impact striker Didier Drogba has said he has no plans to end his playing career when his current contract expires.

Drogba, who turns 39 next March, is out of contract with Montreal at the end of the current MLS season, but he’s not thinking of retiring yet.

“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,” the former Chelsea striker told RTL.

“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.”

Drogba also gave a hint on his plans outside playing, as he revealed he’s getting his coaching badges.

He said: “I want to play, everything is open. What I want is to enjoy myself. Nothing is clear, but I want to give myself the possibility, if one day I’m needed, to be available regardless of the position.

“So, that means courses, exams, I’m going to try and pass all my coaching badges and then be available if ever I’m needed.” said Drogba.

Drogba won it all during his time at Stamford Bridge; 4 Premier League titles to his name, and he crowned it with a Champions League trophy in Munich 4 years ago.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
