Didier Drogba finds a new home in the United States Soccer League

Phoenix now play in the second tier of United States soccer, but as part of his executive role Drogba will be charged with helping the franchise secure one of four Major League Soccer expansion places. But Drogba opted to stay in North America, joining both the ownership group of the nascent USL club and, for one season at least, the first team roster.

The end goal for Didier Drogba seems to be to own an MLS club and with him becoming co-owner & player this could really help the clubs chances of moving to the MLS from the USL.

Chelsea have reportedly showed constant interest on brining back the 23-year-old for the past year and are hoping to find the right price for his services. "I have always liked challenges". When he scores one goal, I expect him to score two.

Phoenix Rising FC was one of 12 groups to officially submit an MLS expansion application to the league in January.

Beyond that, Drogba is framing this move as a way to figure out what life post-football will look like. The team is not likely to sit high-profile acquisition Omar Bravo, but the former Mexican international's age, coupled with Drogba's, will call for excellent service from a midfield that is still finding its rhythm. He has never considered walking away from the game - "that was not an option", he said - but he has not decided precisely what he wants to do within it. Phoenix now play in the United Soccer League, the de facto second tier of USA club football.

Chelsea star: My thoughts on Diego Costa's slump in form
Manchester United is going to be a tough game for us but it doesn't matter who scores, hopefully we will get the three points. I always say that I am very happy at Chelsea. "We started the game very well with great attention and focus".

"This is a transition for me", Drogba said. But it's important for me to get to the next stage of my career.

Plus Mills takes us through all the contenders for the PFA Player of the Year and the Young Player of the Year awards.

The 39-year-old has possessed some brilliant Ultimate Team cards throughout the years, starting with his 87-rated card in Federation Internationale de Football Association 10 up to his Federation Internationale de Football Association 17 card, which has 85 shot power and 86 strength.

Didier Drogba is not done with playing just yet, and he might not be done with MLS, either, if things go the way of Phoenix Rising FC.
