The legends keep leaving in droves. Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba today bade farewell to Stamford Bridge after two spells at the club. The icing on the cake for the Ivorian was that ended his career at the club on a high note; a Premier League trophy.
He addressed Stamford Bridge after the presentation of the Premier League trophy. It’s a difficult moment for me. This one is really special because it’s going to be the last one as a player.
“I want to thank first of all Mr Abramovich, because people keep talking about the amount of money he put in this club but I think it’s a great investment looking on all the great years we’ve had and we’ve won everything.
“I want to say thank you also to Jose. You know how special he is for me. He gave me the chance to come back and the chance to come to this club.
“I want to say thank you to all my ex-team-mates, all the managers I played for under this shirt and a special thank you for this guy because without him and most of his assists there would not be the Didier Drogba celebration: Frank Lampard, thank you.”
