Drogba, 40, ends his 20-year career with defeat of SADA


Didier Drogba's career has been almost almost twenty years. The 40-year-old striker from Côte d'Ivoire played his last match on Thursday (local time).

Drogba lost with his club Phoenik Rising in the USL Payioffe final, the second division in America, with 0-1 from Louisville Citia. Luka Spencer scored in 62 minutes.

Drogba in the spring indicated that he will stop after this season. He achieved the greatest success in 2012 as a Chelsea player.

The Londoners then won the Champions League final in Bayern Munich. The Canadian striker signed an equilibrium shortly, and also hit a decisive penalty in the penal series.

Drogba debuted in May 1999 on behalf of the French Le Mans two-team club in professional football. He also played for Gingamp (2001-2003), Olympique Marseille (2003-2004), Chelsea (2004-2012 and 2014-2015), Shanghai Shenhua (2012), Galatasaray (2012-2014), Montreal Impact (2015-2016 ). ) and Phoenik Rising (2017-2018).

The late bloomer reached 104 international games between 2002 and 2014 and 65 goals for Côte d'Ivoire, making him the highest scorer of all time in his country.

With 164 goals in all leagues, Drogba is the fourth in the list of best scores of all time from Chelsea, behind Frank Lampard (211), Bobbi Tambling (202) and Kerry Dickon (193).

In his career, Drogba won with the Champions League with Chelsea four times in the Premier League, four times FA Cup and one Turkish title.

The two-year-old African footballer of the year (2006 and 2009) made five goals this season on nine regular league games for Phoenik Rising. He then led his American club with three hits – including a striking free kick from the meter or 40 – to the playoffs, in which Louisville Citi was too strong.
