What Didier Drogba Did After His Final Game Proves He's A Class Act

Didier Drogba has made his final ever appearance as a professional footballer.

The 40-year-old lost his last game of his career as Phoenix Rising were beaten 1-0 by Louisville City in the United Soccer League Cup final.

But his actions following the match sum up the big man perfectly.

After the final whistle, Drogba applauded the Phoenix fans who were serenading him. He then encourages his teammates to interact with supporters by shouting: "Come, guys, come" in brilliant scenes.

He even consoled a Phoenix fan, saying: "Don't cry, huh? It's alright. Don't cry."

Before thanking another: "Hey, thank you for everything."

What a bloke. Class is permanent as they say.

Drogba calling time on his illustrious career is a sad day for football with many paying tribute to the Ivory Coast striker and, naturally, Chelsea fans were very vocal.

Drogba enjoyed eight seasons at Stamford Bridge following his transfer from Marseille in 2004.

He scored a bagful of goals - tormenting Arsenal in particular - and made a name for himself as a big game player, popping up on the biggest stages.

Who could forget his header and winning penalty against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final?!

Enjoy retirement, 'King' Drogba.
