Didier Drogba goes crazy meeting young Chelsea supporters

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba turns 37 in March - but you would never have guessed it on the basis of this fantastic Instagram video showing the Ivory Coast legend with some of the club's youngest fans.

The Chelsea legend filmed himself alongside teammates Willian and Kurt Zouma meeting the club's junior supporters - but ended up making more racket than the kids.

Drogba screamed his way throughout the 15-second Instagram clip, which he posted to his personal account alongside the comment: "Fun with true blues, our family, our fans, our future #thebridge #kidsparty #bluespassion #bluefuture #greatmoment."

Fans hail Drogba

If anything though, judging by the comments, the clip further enhanced Drogba's status as a bonafide Chelsea hero.

"Loving the way you interacted with the kids that's brilliant your a true legend," wrote one user.

While another joked: "The kids are more mature than the legend"

Drogba to announce retirement?

It's possible this could be Drogba's final season at Chelsea - and indeed his final season as a professional footballer.

Rumours suggest the veteran forward is considering announcing his retirement, although he should remain a Chelsea player until the end of the season.

Once Drogba hangs up his boots, Jose Mourinho is expected to find a place within his backroom staff for the striker who scored 157 goals in 341 matches during his first spell with the Blues.

This term he has netted six goals from 23 appearances - although he has mostly been used as a substitute.

Drogba: Chelsea legend

Drogba will always occupy a special place in the heart of every Chelsea fan thanks to his goals, passion and, of course, his winning penalty in the 2012 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

That was expected to be Drogba's final kick for Chelsea, as he left Stamford Bridge to embark a new challenge with Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua.

However, that proved to be an ill-fated transfer and he left the club for Galatasaray shortly after.

Following a successful - but brief - spell with the Turkish giants, Mourinho offered Drogba the opportunity to return to west London after offloading Romelu Lukaku, Demba Ba and Fernando Torres - and the striker did not hesitate to say yes.
