As well as being Phoenix's star player, the Ivorian is also an owner of the club, and it is his off-field ventures that the 39-year-old wants to concentrate on going forward.
Didier Drogba who now plays for Phoenix Rising in America's USL, has announced that he will retire from football at the end of the season.
But despite a whiff of controversy surrounding the Chelsea owner, his record speaks for itself and this is something he reiterated to Drogba when the subject arose during their time together.
It will bring an end to a glittering 20-year career in the game for Drogba, who established himself as one of the Premier League's best ever strikers with Chelsea. "I think next year will be my last season", Drogba told RMC Sport.
The striker won 12 trophies in two stints at Chelsea which saw him spend nine years at the club
He has been playing for Phoenix since April and has netted 10 times in his 14 appearances. The team were unfortunately eliminated in the first round of the playoffs in a penalty shootout after a Drogba goal - it was a big game, so of course Didier scored - saw them finish 1-1 in regulation and extra-time. "Playing is good, but at 39, it slows me a bit".
Away from the Premier League Didier Drogba also lifted the Super Lig title with Galatasaray in 2013, while he also spent time in China before moving to MLS with Montreal Impact.
