Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has hinted at a possible return to Europe albeit via his former club Marseille of France. The 38-year-old was released by MLS side Montreal Impact a couple of weeks ago and he is now hunting for a new home.

“There is an option to return to France, but I will no say more,” Drogba said

“I hope to be able to hold my promise one day [to return to Marseille, it can be done. You just have to take the time to sit down and talk.


“My comeback at Marseille is the eternal question for more than 12 years now. Every time I respond, and people say I’m just talking. But you let a player go, and financially he is making a good living since then, and now you want him to come back and divide his salary in two?

“And after that, you say he doesn’t like Marseille. Who works to earn less? No one.

“I would like to come back as a player. I even did what was necessary to make it happen. But I can’t force the board to bring me back.”

“I want to play,” he added.


“I still have my legs and I’m still like a kid with the ball. My knee got a bit annoyed [last season] but I feel good.

“It would also allow me to create a smooth transition into a post-playing career,” concluded Drogba.
