The iconic Ivorian striker has shed his trademark locks and is now sporting a more streamlined look as he welcomes the birth of a "new me"

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has undergone a dramatic image change by shedding his flowing locks.

The Ivorian striker is still going strong at the age of 39 as he turns out for USL side Phoenix Rising.

He has, however, taken the opportunity to open a new chapter in his professional life by revealing a “new me”.

Drogba will be heading into retirement once his current commitments in Phoenix come to a close.

With that in mind, the legendary frontman has obviously decided that it is time for a complete overhaul.

He will be hanging up his boots at the end of a goal and trophy-laden career, with Drogba having started out with Le Mans in France, before forging his reputation at Guingamp and Marseille.

Chelsea snapped him up in 2004 and over the course of eight years in west London he landed three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups and the Champions League.

He returned for a second spell at Stamford Bridge following two seasons with Galatasaray and helped himself to another Premier League crown and League Cup triumph.

Over the course of his two stints with the Blues, Drogba managed a hugely impressive 164 goals.

A move to Canada in 2015 took him to MLS side Montreal Impact, before linking up with Phoenix Rising as a free agent in April 2017.
