Didier Drogba recently appeared to fall out with Montréal Impact after being left out of the starting line-up in a recent game.
This led to some world of words between the player and the club, but it seems that the differences have been patched up. Drogba is out of contract at the end of the campaign, but he has confirmed his intention is to remain with Montréal Impact if he receives a new contract. This would come as a welcome news for the MLS outfit, who would have otherwise had to search for a new designated player capable of replacing the former Champions League winner.
Drogba is 38 years old and it remains as one of the key factors that could prevent Montréal Impact from offering him a new contract. There have been rumours of a potential return to Chelsea in a coaching capacity, but it seems that Drogba may continue in the MLS for another year.
Drogba moved to the MLS in the 2015 season and has been an important player for them even though he has been hit with numerous injuries. A return of 21 goals in 33 appearances for the Canadian outfit speaks volumes about his importance.
The major disappointment for Drogba would be no trophies with Montréal Impact so far.”My contract is ending at Montreal, so I’ll be free at the end of the season. I’m thinking of continuing.If we win the MLS I don’t know what I’ll do. Mentally I’m not tired. I can train for two hours…with a ball I’m still like a kid.I want to play, everything’s open, what I want is to take enjoyment out of it,” said Drogba. After Jose Mourinho was sacked a year ago, Drogba was heavily linked with a return to the Premier League but in the coaching capacity.
