Drogs has officially announced on his website that he will be leaving Chelsea. It was also announced on the club’s website.
‘I LEAVE CHELSEA”
Tuesday May 22, 2012
After eight seasons with Chelsea, I leave the club with a Champions League success and with great sadness, but even better recognition.
“Even the greatest stories come to an end. My contract is finished and I am now prepared to leave the Blues. It is with great sadness but also with much gratitude that I announce you my departure from Chelsea.
I played my last game for the club in Munich and I am delighted to have finally been able to lift the Champions League trophy after an incredible final. I am sad, even if it is part of the life of a footballer. We have to accept it. Above all, I will remember all the great seasons I have had here, and all the emotions that will remain forever etched in my memory.
Thanks again to all the fans for their tremendous support. I wish the best success to this club where I may come back in the future, but in a different role.
“Blue is the color!”"
Chelsea also posted a retrospective of Didier’s time with the club. It’s a loving look back at a singular talent who had a major impact.
Best of luck and a tip of the hat to you, sir. You’re fabulous and I wish you much success in the future.
Updated: Because, of course, we couldn’t omit Kitier Katba’s farewell letter.
