Drogba hints at Chelsea exit


DROGBA-PENALTYLONDON, November 13- Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has hinted that this may well be his final season with the Stamford Bridge outfit.

Drogba is currently enjoying his second spell at the west London club, having returned to the Blues on a free transfer in July after parting ways with Galatasaray.

The Ivory Coast ace put pen to a one-year deal, and it would seem that he won’t be extending his stay beyond the end of his current deal.

“This year, the key for me is to enjoy my football and to be with my team-mates and to win trophies,” he told Chelsea TV.

“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.

“I have always said my first eight years here were the best years of my career. I know they enjoyed it because I did. I’m far from all the players who made history here but I’m also next to them.”

It is not yet clear whether the 36-year-old Drogba will play on after he leaves the Blues, with retirement from the game possibly on the cards.
