Chelsea legend and football maestro Didier Drogba has decided to end his football career and retire. Drogba has retired from professional football and will take a coaching role at Chelsea under Guus Hiddink, claim sensational reports. According to French outlet L’Equipe, the Ivorian has ended his short spell with MLS outfit Montreal Impact after six months. Hiddink always has expressed his desire to work with Drogba- ‘’”A few days ago before the Sunderland game I said that those rare kind of former players with this status would be very good for any club to have. “Especially him because he’s a Chelsea legend, but for the moment we have to respect his contract with Montreal.’’ He adds, ‘’It depends on the player himself, you need to give them time and opportunities to find out what the best is for them. “It may be on the coaching staff or maybe as an ambassador, but that is too official and functional for me. They need to go into the squad and help players with their experience.”
Thibaut Courtois too agreed with Hiddink’s desire and claimed he too would love seeing Drogba return as a part of the coaching staff. He says, “I had a very good relationship with Drogba last year. He was great for the dressing room and our team. “If he comes back as a coach it will be a great addition to all the team.”
As Drogba bids goodbye to his professional career he walks away with 8 domestic trophies, 4 Premier League titles and 1 Champions League medal.
