After having two spells with the Blues, Chelsea legend Didier Drogba is still playing active football and has spent his time in America playing for Montreal Impact and Phoenix Rising recently.

Drogba, who’s now player-owner of Phoenix, has revealed next season will be his last before he moves on to concentrate on other projects.

Drogba, speaking to RMC in France, said: “I think next year will be my last season. There comes a time when you have to stop.

“I need time for my other projects. It’s good to play, but at 39, it holds me back a bit.”

Drogba was signed by Jose Mourinho in 2004 and he went on to become one of the club’s greatest players.

In a career that began with Le Mans in 1998, Drogba has also played for Guingamp, Marseille, Shanghai Shenhua, Galatasaray and the Ivory Coast national team.

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.
