Chelsea Hero Didier Drogba Has Officially Retired From Football

Chelsea Hero Didier Drogba Has Officially Retired From Football

Didier Drogba has sadly called time on his glittering career and in honour of his playing days, we remember what a player he was.

The 40-year-old made his name in England. He rose to prominence in France, scoring goals for Guingamp then Marseille including 19 league goals the season before signing for Chelsea.

He enjoyed eight seasons at Stamford Bridge becoming a hero for his prolific goal scoring record and winning the lot.

We're talking four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups and the footballing holy grail in 2012.

Drogba helped Chelsea win the Champions League in 2012, scoring the equalising goal before netting the winning penalty in the shootout against Bayern Munich.

Big players were judged on big games, and he delivered.

Not only scoring on THAT night in Munich but also popping up in domestic finals and scoring against Chelsea's rivals - Arsenal's chief tormentor.

He ended his professional career in the States with Phoenix Rising and in his final game he proved he's a class act.

What a player. Enjoy retirement, Didier.
