Chelsea legend Didier Drogba to push ahead with retirement plans

Drogba to push ahead with retirement plans

I really enjoy playing. I'm surrounded by a lot of youngsters, and I like passing my know-how on to them. I am also looking forward to spending more quality time in Côte d'Ivoire and getting involved in a cause that is of high importance to the local community. He made his professional debut with Le Mans in 1998 at 20.

Drogba has been rumoured to go back to his former club Marseille, where he won the UEFA Cup in 2004, to take up a boardroom role there.

Drogba spent eight seasons at Stamford Bridge over two spells, winning four Premier League titles and netting the winning penalty in the 2012 Champions League final.

Age has finally caught up with him, but the Drogba dynasty looks set to continue as eldest son Isaac recently linked up with the Guingamp youth academy.

There has also been talk of the player returning to Marseille in a non-playing role, but the Ivorian is unsure if anything will materialise.

"We'll have to see what is offered".

Drogba said: "I am excited to be working with Standard Chartered Bank and honoured to be chosen to support their efforts to enhance accessibility to banking services for the people of my country".

"In any case, Marseille are showing good things this year".

Drogba who appeared in three World Cup tournaments - 2006, 2010 and 2014, is Cote d'Ivoire's all-time top scorer with 63 goals in 104 appearances. "I am truly grateful for this opportunity and can't wait to engage with my fans on social media to spread the word".
