Former Chelsea and Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba looks set to retire from football, in the wake of Phoenix Rising FC’s defeat in the final of the United Soccer League Cup, reports ESPN.
Drogba, a player and co-owner at the Phoenix club since 2017, had previously said that he would retire at the end of the season, which has now come to a close with the 1-0 loss to Louisville City FC.
What the 40-year-old plans to do next, should he retire, is not yet known, though he indicated to ESPN in late 2017 that he would be looking into an administrative role with Rising. “The plan is going well; this opportunity is amazing because it puts me straight into what I want to learn. I enjoy more the fact that I am learning a lot about the other side of the game, which is very important,” he said a year ago.
The two-time African footballer of the year has had a storied career that spanned the globe, with his early career spent in France, most notably with Marseille.
