At 37 Drogba feels he’s young enough to play
At 37 years, Chelsea star and Ivory Coast international, Didier Drogba has revealed that he plans to keep playing the round leather for at least another year, even though his contract at the English club expires at the end of the season.
Drogba’s career has seen him win league titles in England and Turkey, the Champions League, the FA Cup on four occasions and three League Cups.
The former Ivory Coast international looks set to finish 2014-15 as a Premier League title winner for a fourth time although he is used primarily as an impact substitute in his second spell at Stamford Bridge.
Drogba penned a one-year deal when he rejoined Chelsea in July and wants to play on into 2015-16.
“I have made a decision, yes,” he told the Daily Telegraph when asked if he has reached a decision on his future. “And no, it’s not my last season.”
Drogba has scored three goals in 23 league appearances for Chelsea this term, four of which have been starts.
Back in January, Drogba said: “I love this club and would love to be part of this club for the future, with the new players.”
