The Drogba saga continues. Here’s what we know: UPDATED DIPLO EDITION

Could we see Drogba on this field?

According to France Football, Phoenix Rising FC has signed Didier Drogba to a three year deal that will see him on the pitch for Phoenix in 2017, and moving to the front office thereafter. So far though, there has been no confirmation.

Minnesota’s Pioneer Press reported last week that Drogba was close to a deal, and it was backed up by former Arizona soccer reporter Odeen Domingo.

 

Well, he didn’t show up over the weekend for Phoenix’s 1-0 loss to Toronto.

Then this.

 

UPDATE: MINORITY OWNER DIPLO HINTS THAT IT’S ALL TRUE IS THIS REAL LIFE????????

 

This would obviously be a dream signing for a second-division club anywhere, for its public relations value alone. The 39-year-old legend probably still has a few goals in him at this level, and having him involved in coaching or recruiting would be a coup in the long term.
