A former Chelsea striker, Didier Drogba has revealed he is set to call it off on playing football in 2018.
Addressing RMC (h/t Ian Holyman of ESPN FC) the Ivorian symbol said the following effort with Phoenix Rising FC, where he is the player-proprietor, will be the last before he resigns.
“I think next year will be my last season,” he admitted. “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.”
Provided Drogba does play into next year it means his professional senior career would have spanned an incredible 20 years. The forward made his debut for Le Mans in 1998.
