Outgoing Chelsea striker Didier Drogba promised an imminent announcement of his “interesting” move to a new club but would not confirm heading for the big-spending Chinese team Shanghai Shenhua.
“The next step is going to be an interesting one and I think soon I’m going to announce it,” Drogba, on his first visit to India for a promotional event, told the moderator of a packed news conference on Sunday.
“For now, I’ll just ask you to wait a few moments.”
Tightlipped about his future, Drogba, however, spoke fondly of his days in Chelsea and his decision to leave the club on a high after winning the Champions League. “It was important for me to achieve what I did in Chelsea. I have been the top scorer twice. Winning the Champions Trophy, winning the Premier League...I won everything and I’m proud. It's good to go out at the right time.”
