Didier Drogba says he will not be returning to Montreal Impact next season.
The 38-year-old former Chelsea striker played his last home game for the club on Tuesday, coming on as a second-half substitute in Impact’s 3-2 win over Toronto FC in the first leg of the MLS Eastern Conference finals.
“Everyone knows that it was my last game here,” Drogba said when asked after the match if he would be back next season.
“There is still one, maybe two games to go. Let’s think about next week’s game, I think that is more important than if it’s finished or not.”
Drogba joined Montreal in July 2015 and has scored 21 regular season goals in 33 appearances across two seasons.
Injuries resulted in him losing his place in the starting line-up to Italian Matteo Mancosu and a subsequent feud over playing time with manager Mauro Biello extended his spell on the sidelines.
Drogba, who has also played for Marseilles, Galatasaray and Shanghai Shenhua, has not said if he has signed for another club.
