Didier Drogba Played His Final Game At Stamford Bridge For The Chelsea Blues

The 37-year-old Ivorian sticker announced that he will not be playing for Chelsea next season. Before the Premiere League finale versus Sunderland, Drogba posted the following message on his Instagram account:

“Today will be my last game for CFC. I have spoken at length with Jose and he understands I want to play for at least one more season. In order to play more football I know I need to go to another club. All the fans know my love for Chelsea & I hope to be back here in the future in another role.
Let’s enjoy all together!!!!
#thankyou #cfcforever #championsofeurope

A well-deserved tribute

The veteran was substituted at the 29th minute after suffering from an injury and received a well-deserved tribute from his teammates. The Blues carried Drogba off the pitch to mark his final appearance as a Chelsea player. For the last time, he gave the captain’s armband to his teammate John Terry.
