Didier Drogba has dropped his biggest hint yet, that he may not end his career with Chelsea.
The Ivorian striker, who has two years left on his current contract, has been at Stamford Bridge since 2004 following a move from Marseille.
The 32-year-old has now contradicted a previous declaration that he would finish his career at Stamford Bridge.
He told Canal Plus: “When I signed a new contract at Chelsea, I always said I wanted to finish my career here.
“But I am well placed to say that anything can happen.
“When I was at Marseille I said I would finish my career there but, one week later, everything changed.”
Chelsea face Marseille on Tuesday in the Champions League, and Drogba, who misses the game due to suspension, is hopeful of facing his old club in the return fixture.
“I hope I don’t miss the return match as the Velodrome has an exceptional atmosphere,” he said.
“I did not think I would miss this game, but that is a lesson in life.
“I have already warned my team-mates about the Stade Velodrone, I said forget about Stamford Bridge, Old Trafford, St James’ Park – the Velodrome is unique.”
