Didier Drogba announced he will retire after next season. The former Chelsea star will feature one last campaign with Phoenix Rising of the USL, the team he partially owns. He will reportedly set his sights on getting his team into MLS, somewhat following in the footsteps of fellow European club legend, David Beckham.
MLS announced its key offseason dates yesterday. The significant one is Tuesday, December 12, which is the Los Angeles FC expansion draft and the beginning of the free agency period.
