Didier Drogba has given a major hint that this season could be his last at Chelsea.
The forward came back to the West London outfit only in the summer on a one-year contract. At 36 years of age, he is no longer capable of playing on a regular basis. It was a largely held belief that Drogba’s return was made purely on a sentimental basis, but the striker has proved in recent weeks that it was not the case. His goals against the likes of Maribor and Manchester United have helped Chelsea pick up some vital points.
The striker, though, has confirmed that this season could be his final at the club. Diego Costa and Loic Remy are expected to be the main strikers going forward. Costa has proved to be the missing link in the Chelsea jigsaw. The former Atletico Madrid forward has already scored 10 goals and is the league’s second best scorer. Drogba managed to win several titles including the Premier League and the Champions League in his first spell at Chelsea. He is hoping for a similarly trophy laden campaign this time around. Chelsea appear overwhelming favourites for the league title due to their eight-point advantage over Manchester City.
Chelsea are also close to sealing qualification to the last 16 of the Champions League with one match remaining. “This year, the key for me is to enjoy my football and to be with my team-mates and to win trophies.There is one more year to go so let’s do it, let’s win more trophies, let’s make history again.This relationship between me and the fans goes both ways, the way they show their support and the way they love me. If there is some way I love them even more because of all we achieved together, all the history,” said Drogba.
