Didier Drobga will dedicate himself to charity work after football

  • Chelsea player also appeals for peace in his homeland
 

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba will dedicate his life after football to charity work rather than pursue a coaching role.
The 33-year-old established the Didier Drogba Foundation in 2007 in an attempt to provide basic healthcare and education in African countries and will put all his efforts into further improving the lives of others upon retirement.


"Working with the humanitarian thing is something very important to me," Drogba said - as quoted by Sporting Life.

"It's not just because I am playing - I am not doing this just to promote myself. I'm using my image to promote my foundation, so it is something I want to do long-term.

"It's not something you do and after three years you [stop]. It's something very serious. I'm not doing it for fame."Actually it's my main passion. When I retire, it will become my priority number one.

"At the moment, playing is very important too!"

However, the Chelsea star have no immediate plans to hang up his boots and believes he can continue playing for a number of years.

When asked how much longer he would stay in football, Drogba said: "I don't know, maybe 10 years?

"I don't know, even if I'm not doing it full-time, I'm giving it my best and that's the most important thing.

"If I retire tomorrow or in five years or six years, I don't know, but it's not really the point.

"The point is the involvement, being their full-time or part-time, it is involvement." The Ivorian national football team captain Didier Drogba told the BBC that the people of his homeland have done as much as they can to resolve the political situation in his country.

Didier Speaks About the Issues In the Ivory Coast



The Ivorian national football team captain Didier Drogba told the BBC that the people of his homeland have done as much as they can to resolve the political situation in his country.

The African Union has proposed a government of national unity headed by Alassane Ouattara, the man whom most of the international community accepts as having won November's disputed election there.

But representatives of Laurent Gbagbo, the Ivory Coast president who refuses to leave office, have rejected the AU's recommendation aimed at resolving the country's crisis.

The Ivory Coast and Chelsea player, who has openly campaigned for peace in Ivory Coast in the past, spoke to the BBC's Piers Edwards in Barcelona.
