​Chelsea legend Drogba officially announces retirement

Chelsea star Didier Drogba has retired from football.

Drogba was playing for Phoenix Rising in the USL division of American football.

His side lost in the Cup final to Louisville City, marking the former Chelsea star's final game in professional football.

He is part owner of the team, which means his relationship with Phoenix City is set to continue in another capacity.

Drogba's glittering career included four Premier League titles and the UEFA Champions League.
