The 39-year-old made 381 appearances for Chelsea across two spells, scoring 164 times in the process.

Drogba won four Premier League titles at Stamford Bridge, as well as four FA Cups, three League Cups and one Champions League.

Speaking to RMC Sport, Drogba said, “Ah, do you want a scoop? I think next year will be my last season.

“At some point you have to stop. I need to have time for my other projects.”

He added, “It’s good to play, but at 39, it holds me back a bit.”

Drogba has been playing for Phoenix since the turn of the year, where he has scored 10 times in his 14 appearances.
