Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has announced that he intends to retire from football at the end of the season.

The former Chelsea star is now playing for United Soccer League side Phoenix Rising FC, who he also co-owns.

In total he played 381 times for the Blues, scoring 164 times; Drogba also won the Premier League on four occasions, the FA Cup four times and netted the winning penalty when Chelsea beat Bayern Munich to win the UEFA Champions League.

Equity markets on Tuesday spiralled down further as Sensex lost nearly a 100 points to close below the 33,000-mark. The loss in BSE capital goods was maximum at 1.41 per cent, followed by telecom, infrastructure and PSU.

Speaking to RMC Sport about his future, Drogba said,"Ah, do you want a scoop?"

The 2012 Champions League victor scored 10 goals in 14 regular season games to help his franchise into the USL playoffs, where they lost to eventual championship runners-up Swope Park Rangers.

"John, I wouldn't say he's underrated because everyone appreciates how good he was but I think he's underrated on the ball, how good he was". Playing is good, but at 39, it slows me down a bit, "said Drogba, who hopes to join a Major League Soccer franchise by 2020 as a manager or coach".
