On May 24 of 2015 Didier Drogba played his last match as a player of Chelsea and ever since then, the Ivorian player has been a free agent but the experienced attacker has revealed that making a move to the MLS is an event that can indeed happen.
Drogba rejected rumors of him making a return to Marseille. Even at his 37 years of age, Drogba still wants to continue playing as he has no desire of retiring at this point of his career and the veteran player said that returning to Marseille is something that will not happen as the French club does not have a project or a plan to win big things and Drogba wants to go somewhere where they have plans of winning.
Former star of Chelsea, Didier Drogba said: ‘’It’s not a question of money. I like to have a project. And Marseille, which I know well, does not have a project. They have sold their best players, whom they let go till the end of their contracts. I’m talking about Andre Ayew, Andre-Pierre Gignacand they’ll lose more.’I don’t want to go to Marseille to just play. If I go somewhere, it’s to win, and I want to win. The question has been coming up for 10 years.’’
It seems like Didier Drogba making a move to his former side Marseille is not going to happen but the Ivorian player did reveal the possibility of joining the American League, Major League Soccer.
When Drogba was asked if he would join the MLS side, New York Red Bulls and follow the footsteps of Thierry Henry who used to perform with the American side, Drogba replied by saying: ‘’Ok, just call the owners and then I’m there.”
