Chelsea legend Drogba dismisses Montreal Impact retirement claims

Didier Drogba has made it clear that he has not announced his retirement from football.

A report on L'Equipe suggested that the Ivory Coast veteran had called time on his playing career and was set to return to Chelsea in a coaching role.

37-year-old Drogba is currently contracted with MLS club Montreal Impact and says he has not yet made a call on whether or not he will be departing the Canadian outfit to join Guus Hiddink's coaching staff at Stamford Bridge.

Drogba Tweeted:

Drogba has been heavily linked with a third return to Chelsea, following two successful playing spells in West London, but at this point in time remains in talks with the Impact regarding the 2016 MLS season.
