Drogba ponders his future

12 June 2007 08:23
Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has once again hinted that he could leave the club and move to Spain or Italy. The 29-year-old Ivory Coast international has scored 65 goals in 142 appearances for the Blues in his three seasons at Stamford Bridge, but claims he wants one last challenge before ending his career. He was quoted in The Sun as saying: "If I think the club lacks ambition, then it is sure I will not stay too long. I'm 29 and I don't have much time to lose. "I'm at the last big turning point of my career. "It's time for one final big choice - should I stay or should I go? I am tempted to discover another world and to see what footballing life is like outside England. "It would be a big disappointment if I never manage to play for teams that I dream of playing for. That would be terribly frustrating. "Spain and Italy attract me a lot and, although I am a long way from saying farewell to Chelsea, you never know what can happen." Drogba moved to Chelsea from Marseille for £24million three summers ago.
