Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has announced that he will be leaving Montreal Impact soon but could still carry on playing even at the age of 38.
The Chelsea Legend is still undecided as to whether to continue his playing career or hang up his boots and move straight into coaching, having been linked with a return to Stamford Bridge as a coaching staff. The Ivorian was lethal for Chelsea during his time at the club, notching up 104 Premier League goals across two spells at the club. The player also helped Chelsea to the UEFA Champions League trophy in 2012 and will forever be loved by Chelsea fans because of his achievements.
Drogba, one of the all-time greats in the Premier League, has so far enjoyed a wonderful time in the MLS having scored 22 goals in the 36 games that he has played for the American-based club – Montreal. This statistics put him well above the likes of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard – both of whom also spent some time in the MLS. Didier Drogba is unlikely to be short of offers to carry with his playing career.
Drogba helped Montreal Impact to a 3-2 win over Toronto FC in the first leg of the Eastern Conference finals in front of a sell-out 61000 crowd. The second leg of the game will be played on November 30 with the winner progressing to the MLS Cup Final in Seattle on 10 December.
“There’s still one or maybe two games to go. Next week’s game is more important than if it’s finished or not.
“Everyone knows it was my last game here. Now let’s focus on the semi-final.”
Chelsea actually tried to bring Drogba on board to join their coaching staff last season but the player decided that he wanted to continue his playing career. Drogba has always been known as a leader and a winner.
