Drogba planning retirement in 2018

The team were unfortunately eliminated in the first round of the playoffs in a penalty shootout after a Drogba goal - it was a big game, so of course Didier scored - saw them finish 1-1 in regulation and extra-time.

Since taking over the club in 2003, Abramovich has hired ten different managers and has shown a ruthlessness in his approach, often dismissing his employees just months after periods of success.

He did, however, return to his former haunt for a swansong season in 2014-15, where he picked up the Premier League and League Cup trophies in his final season in England.

Speaking to RMC (h/t Ian Holyman of ESPN FC) the Ivorian icon said the next campaign with Phoenix Rising FC, where he is the player-owner, will be the last before he retires. He replied: "But Didier, each time I have done it, we have got results"'. I need to have some time for my other projects.

He won four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups and one Champions League across two spells at the club.

During his rich career, Drogba has played in Le Mans, Guingamp, Marseille, Chelsea, Shanghai Shenhua, Galatasaray, the Montreal Impact and Phoenix Rising.

He added: "It's good to play, but at 39, it holds me back a bit".
