Drogba Says That He Is Leaving Chelsea
After an eight-year spell with Chelsea, Didier Drogba has announced that he would be leaving this summer.
“We (he and his team-mates) will not be together next season,” Drogba told France Football magazine. “As I have decided to leave, I wanted to tell them to their faces.
“They made me break down. I found it hard to admit that it was finished with me and the club. But I don’t envisage sitting on the bench watching others play at a time when the club is looking at putting together a new team.
“So there we go, I am readying myself for a great leap into the unknown. It will be another adventure.”
Drogba’s last contribution, was to score the winning penalty that made sure Chelsea lifted the Champions League.
