Chelsea have a plethora of attacking talent, but who knew their lanky 'keeper could do round-the-world kick-ups? Watch the Belgian school Mikel, Matic and Fabregas in this clip.

Cape Town - Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has hinted his return to Stamford Bridge could be a one-year affair only, as he contemplates retirement.

After leaving Stamford Bridge in 2012, the Ivory Coast international made his return to the London club this summer, signing a 12-month contract with the Blues.

While still enjoying his footballing days and proving he still has the desire and ability to cut it at the top level, Drogba has hinted he may retire next summer once his contract at Chelsea comes to an end.

"This year the key for me is to enjoy my football and to be with my team-mates and to win trophies,” the Daily Star quotes him as saying.

"There is one more year to go so let's do it, let's win more trophies, let's make history again.

"This relationship between me and the fans goes both ways, the way they show their support and the way they love me. If there is some way I love them even more because of all we achieved together, all the history.

"I have always said my first eight years here were the best years of my career. I know they enjoyed it because I did.

"I'm far from all the players who made history here, but I'm also next to them."
