Chelsea legend Didier Drogba is set to end his time in the MLS at the end of the current season, according to reports.
The 38-year old Ivorian told reporters that he had played in his last home game for Montreal Impact following their 3-2 victory over Toronto FC in the Eastern Conference finals.
“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,” the Champions League winner said when asked about his future plans.
The player has not disclosed his next move but the striker would not be short of offers is he decides to play for another year before hanging his boots. He has played and won titles in France for Marseille, England for Chelsea, including Golden Boots, Premier League, FA Cups et al., Galatasaray in Turkey and Shanghai Shenhua in the Chinese League.
Drogba was a second half substitute in the win over TFC. He came on in the 71st minute after Impact has scored three goals. Toronto pulled back two courtesy of late goals. The goals might prove handy for the visitors when the both sides meet for the return leg on November 30, 2016.
The winner of the duel will get a straight ticket to the MLS Cup final against either of Seattle or Colorado on December 10. Drogba would be leaving the MLS on a high, having netted 27 goals in 33 games for the American club. The player might retire just like Steven Gerrard at the end of the season or continue to play a bit before hanging his boots finally.
