Drogba calls time on career

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 3,066

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has finally retired as a professional footballer, at the age of 40.

The Ivorian international spent time at Le Mans, Marseille, Shanghai Shenhua, Galatasaray, Montreal Impact and most recently Phoenix Rising in the USL.

After losing the final of the second tier in US football on Thursday, the 40-year-old finally announced that he would be hanging up his boots.

His most memorable moments came in a Chelsea shirt, however, the striker netting 164 times in 381 appearances for the 'Blues'.

Winning four Premier League titles and four FA Cups, his most famous moment for the London club was scoring the winning-penalty against Bayern Munich in the 2011-12 Champions League final, to clinch the club's first-ever European title.

He will now look to include Phoenix Rising, the club he partially owns, in the MLS when a planned expansion of the league takes place.
