Twitter: Chelsea legend set to disappoint Stamford Bridge fans as he outlines plans for remarkable journey

Didier Drogba appears to have confirmed that he’s returning to Montreal Impact for the 2016 Major League Soccer season, ending speculation over a return to Chelsea.

The Ivorian hitman shone during the last few weeks of the Major League Soccer season, having moved to the Canadian side halfway through the campaign.

However, the West African icon was heavily linked with a move back to Stamford Bridge in light of the sacking of Jose Mourinho, having been pictured sat alongside interim coach Guus Hiddink during a match at Stamford Bridge.

There were rumours that Drogba—who also featured for Marseille, Shanghai Shenhua and Galatasaray—had confirmed his retirement from active competition in order to return to west London and join the Chelsea coaching staff.

However, the striker has taken to social media to apparently dispel the rumours and pledge his future to Montreal.

“On my way to Qatar to begin preparing for the season,” the hitman wrote on Twitter, clearly looking ahead to a full MLS campaign with the Impact.

What isn’t immediately clear, however, is how the Blues legend is planning to drive all the way from Canada to Qatar…as his Twitter post suggests!
