It's been a long time since some of these world class players announced their retirement. Some of them have moved on from football while some still returned as club coaches or football association.
Now, as a long time football lover, below are few of some world class football players which one of them would you like to return back to the pitch as a player.
ZINEDINE YAZID ZIDANE

RONALDO DE ASSIS MOREIRA
Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, popularly known as Ronaldinho Gaúcho or simply Ronaldinho, is a Brazilian former professional footballer and current ambassador for Barcelona football club. He played mostly as an attacking midfielder, but was also deployed as a winger in some matches. We all really miss his skillful moves on the pitch though.
DIDIER YVES DROGBA TEBILY
Didier Yves Drogba Tébily is an Ivorian retired professional footballer who played as a striker in Chelsea football club in England and also Galatasaray in Turkey and other clubs in other leagues. He is the all-time top scorer in England and former captain of the Ivory Coast national team.
He performed outstandingly well during his Era.
SAMUEL ETO'O FILS
Samuel Eto'o Fils is a Cameroonian retired professional footballer who played as a striker mostly in Spanish La Liga.
In his prime, Eto'o was regarded by pundits as one of the best strikers in the world, and he is regarded as one of the greatest African players of all time, winning the African Player of the Year, a record won four times: in 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2010.
A precocious talent, Eto'o moved to Real Madrid football club as a 16 year old. Due to to much competition in his position of expertise and with more experienced players, he had several loan spells from Real Madrid, before signing for Mallorca in the year 2000 where he scored up to 70 goals. His impressive form saw him join Barcelona football club in 2004 where he scored 130 goals in five football seasons and also became the record holder for the most number of appearances by an African player in La Liga.
Take note these players are not the only best, just that I single handedly picked them out.
