Chelsea legend Drogba set to retire

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

The USL campaign begins in March 2018 and finishes in November.

Drogba made the revelation in a chat with RMC Sport, saying that he's got to the stage where he needs more time for other projects. "There comes a time when you have to stop", said Drogba. I need to have time for my other projects.

Drogba is now with Phoenix Rising, where he is also a part-owner, and has admitted that age is finally catching up with him when asked about the retirement question this week. Much like David Beckham is attempting in Miami.

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

He proved that he still had that natural killer instinct in front of goal by netting 10 goals in 14 appearances before Rising were knocked out of the play-offs by Swope Park Rangers.

Chelsea's Didier Drogba celebrates after scoring against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

In April, Drogba explained: "Roman Abramovich always made the right decision, even when it was the most hard decision".

"John, I wouldn't say he's underrated because everyone appreciates how good he was but I think he's underrated on the ball, how good he was".
