VIDEO: Didier Drogba carried off the field in final Chelsea appearance


With the Ivorian confirming this morning that he will leave Stamford Bridge after the conclusion of the season, the Blues players felt the need to honor him today on the field.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho gave Drogba the start and kept him on the field for a half-hour before taking him off for Diego Costa, and the players carried Drogba off amid a standing ovation from the home fans.

Drogba, at 37 years of age, made his 381st Chelsea appearance today and will look to continue his club career elsewhere.
