"I'm 40, it's time now," says the legendary Ivorian player.
After a legendary career spanning nearly 20 years, Ivorian soccer star Didier Drogba, will officially retire from the sport at the end of the season.
"It's really a pleasure for me to play. I started late at the top level. I really enjoy playing. I like my role of owner-player a lot," Drogba told Telefoot. "I'm surrounded by a lot of youngsters, and I like passing my know-how on to them. But this season is the last. I'm 40, it's time now."
