Didier Drogba denies he’s leaving the Montreal Impact
According to L’Équipe, the 37-year-old striker has reportedly told the team he’s retiring after just half a season with the MLS club.
Drogba is expected to rejoin Chelsea FC, his former club back in England, as a coach.
The striker took to Twitter to deny rumours that he’s retiring.
Though the Impact is expected to be paid in compensation, Drogba’s departure will leave a big hole on the front line.
He was a scoring sensation with 11 goals in 12 regular season games after joining the team in July.
He had a year remaining on his contract with the MLS club, but rumours started circulating last year that Chelsea would try to buy him out to help save a disastrous English Premier League campaign.
The Montreal Impact declined a request for comment.
