Drogba Denies Retiring From Football Just Yet

Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba has denied reports of his retirement on Wednesday, saying he had not yet taken a decision over his future amid speculation about a possible coaching role with former club Chelsea.

The Montreal Impact striker said he was still in discussions with the Major League Soccer outfit, who he joined last year.

“Lovely to receive these messages but I have not yet announced my retirement & am still in discussion with @impactmontreal about my future,” Drogba wrote on Twitter.

French newspaper L’Equipe earlier reported on Wednesday that the Ivory Coast legend had already informed Montreal of his plans to quit and return to Chelsea.

Drogba’s future has been the subject of intense speculation since he was seen seated alongside Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and Guus Hiddink during the Premier League team’s match against Sunderland last month.

Montreal are reportedly reluctant to part company with Drogba, who is contracted to the club for the 2016 season.

The 37-year-old made a spectacular start to his MLS career last season, with 11 goals in 11 regular-season matches.
