There are some players who are just meant to stay with a certain club all through out their career. The thought of them leaving, is well, just unthinkable. We have seen it in the past with Shevchenko, Henry and most recently Kaka where these players after leaving failed to make an impact in their new clubs.
Of course this is not the case in all circumstances, however, it is the norm in most scenarios. Reports are now emerging that Chelsea’s iconic striker Didier Drogba might not finish his career in London after all. As much as it is hard to imagine this there could be some truth to it.
Drogba is now 32 years old and although he still plays a big part in Ancelotti’s squad, his days are numbered and he knows it. This past summer, Drogba was the interest of French club Olympique Marseille who had reportedly made a bid to re-sign their former player.
Drogba has 2 years left on his current contract this despite the fact that he has openly said that he would welcome a return to the French side. Drogba is in Ancelotti’s squad to face Marseille at the bridge today however he will miss the return leg in December due to suspension.
Chelsea without Drogba is hard to fathom however, fans should accept the reality that double D won’t be there forever.
“When I was at Marseille I said I would finish my career there but, one week later, everything changed.
“I hope I don’t miss the return match as the Velodrome has an exceptional atmosphere.”
