After leaving Montreal Impact following the end of the 2016 Major League Soccer season, Drogba, 39, became the first player-owner in the history of the game when he took over United Soccer League outfit Phoenix Rising FC in 2017.
Drogba only signed for Phoenix in April and has scored 10 times in 14 appearances, bringing his career total to 296 goals in 677 appearances.
"I think next year will be my last season".
In total he played 381 times for the Blues, scoring 164 times; Drogba also won the Premier League on four occasions, the FA Cup four times and netted the winning penalty when Chelsea beat Bayern Munich to win the UEFA Champions League.
He did, however, return to his former haunt for a swansong season in 2014-15, where he picked up the Premier League and League Cup trophies in his final season in England.
"I need time for my other projects. Playing is good, but at 39, it slows me a bit".
