Didier Drogba Does Retired Person Thing, Moves To Arizona

Former Ivory Coast, Chelsea and most recently Montreal Impact forward Didier Drogba has become the biggest name to join United States challenger league the USL, the second tier of professional football in the US.

With Drogba and the ownership group's star power (and money), Phoenix Rising are positioning themselves to win one of Major League Soccer's upcoming expansion slots.

As part of the deal, Drogba will help develop the team as a player before advancing to an executive role with the Phoenix MLS expansion franchise.

A senior opposition official said 20 fighters who guarded the buses were killed as well as dozens of passengers. One of those stranded is Ahmed Afandar from Madaya who has described the situation as "disastrous".

One man who wouldn't be surprised by Lukaku's move back to Chelsea is Drogba, with SunSport exclusively revealing his role in making the transfer happen.

One is Villarreal's Cedric Bakambu, a 25 year-old Congolese global and the other is Real Sociedad's Willian Jose, also 25, who has scored 11 goals in 19 appearances this term.

DIDIER DROGBA is now the newest member of Phoenix Rising FC. "I'm not going to interfere in his decisions or his responsibilities", he said. Phoenix now play in the United Soccer League, the de facto second tier of U.S. club football. He reportedly had plenty of offers from other teams in other leagues, but opted to go for this one as it gave him an ownership stake and a clear path to a post-playing career. "It is time to prepare for the next stage of my life, to get everything ready for the next phase". "That was incredible for me".
