Farewell Drogs

Whispers reaching Chelsea-Mad Towers have suggested that Didier Drogba has played his final match for the Blues.

A couple of normally reliable sources have said that Drogba, 34, told players yesterday that he won't be remaining beyond June 30, when his contract expires.

Drogba's intended destination will be China where he will ply his trade for Shanghai Shenhua in the Chinese Super League.

While awaiting official confirmation, it's worthwhile noting that in 275 games in a Blues shirt, the Ivory Coast hitman scored 157 goals, the last in Saturday's Champions League Final victory against Bayern Munich.

Drogba signed for Chelsea in 2004 from Marseilles having played for two other French sides Guingamp, and Le Mans.

So farewell, Droga, a true Chelsea legend.
