New Montreal Impact signing Didier Drogba has asked for patience from fans of the MLS club, saying he doesn’t want to be a burden ahead of his debut in the league.
Drogba has not played since Chelsea’s final match in the 2014-15 season and intends to work on his fitness before joining the rest of the impact squad.
Drogba joined impact as part of a trade with Chicago Fire.
“It’s almost been two-and-a-half months that I haven’t played,” Drogba told the MLS website.
“I’ll need time. We’ll see with the coach… I will eventually play but I want to be able to contribute to the team and not be kind of a burden. I need to get ready.”
