Latest rumour is that Drogba has retired now as a player and is taking a coaching gig at Chelsea.

Too bad as he clearly could have kept playing at the MLS level.

Kind of a blow to the MLS, huge blow for the Impact.

That's nuts? He was on fire there last year. Why not play another year, pad the bank account a bit and enjoy life in North America. He still can play for sure.
I don't see him being a top coach one day for some reason.
One second he is about to play again now retiring? Seems weird to me.

Seems weird to me too.

Maybe its too good of a coaching opportunity to turn down, it is Chelsea after all, and maybe Abromovich is matching his playing salary to be an assistant manager or 1st team coach.

And, a lot of these guys come over here and bang, they want to go back right away.
Miller, Robson, Dafoe, etc.
Contrary to how we and the Americans feel about it here, a lot of these European based footy people obviously don't like it in North America.
