  6. If he is fit, he needs not to retire. Look at the Likes of Pierlo, John Terry, Steven Gerrad. Tevez and others. Are they not still playing? What age did Drogba finally hang his boots???? Only Injury forces players to retire early. Its difficult to say goodbye to something you have done all your life esp. if you don’t plan well
