On Wednesday, reports emerged suggesting that Didier Drogba had made the decision to retire from professional football. That action would free him from his commitment to Major League Soccer, allowing him to return to Chelsea in a coaching capacity.

As it happens, those reports may have been a bit premature:

At this point, Drogba's retirement from football is just one option that the Blues' legend is considering, though I'd still be quite surprised if that didn't wind up happening. It's still entirely possible that the Ivorian decides to play one final season for the Montreal Impact, which would likely mean that his coaching career would be put on hold until November.

Regardless, with the MLS season getting closer, I'd expect a decision one way or the other very, very soon.
