Former Chelsea ace Didier Drogba’s future has been put into uncertainty after Montreal Impact excluded the striker from the 18-man squad that is set to play their derby game against Toronto FC, according to

The news also raised speculations of a possible fall-out with club officials, especially head coach Mauro Biello.

However, the club have stated it is due to a back injury of the Ivorian that resulted in his exclusion rather than any other cause.

The 38-year-old was recently linked with a potential move to Italy joining Serie A side Napoli, which remains a possibility at the present scenario.

Napoli lost Polish international Arkadiusz Milik to a cruciate ligament rupture earlier this month and he will be out of action for a significant period.

The Sao Paolo-based outfit have now turned their attentions to bring Drogba to Naples which could prove to be a short-term solution to their current problems.

The forward had an instant impact upon his arrival in Major League Soccer (MLS) in 2015 and in his two years, he amassed 19 goals in 23 appearances to date.

Montreal Impact desperately need a win against Toronto to be in contention of a play-off spot and they have only one more game remaining in the domestic season.

The ex-Blues player has always been a thorough professional and always maintained discipline on the pitch as well off it, earning accolades from all quarters.

A widely respected individual, Drogba still is a nemesis for defenders across the globe and he can come up with phenomenal performances against any world-class side despite the age factor.
