Drogba hits out at racist Fenerbahce fans

Galatasaray striker Didier Drogba has lashed out at Fenerbahce fans for the racist abuse he received during the Istanbul derby on Sunday.

On a heated Sunday evening at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium, Burak Yilmaz gave Galatasaray the lead with a 25th-minute penalty but two goals in four minutes from Pierre Webo put the hosts ahead at half-time, and they were able to hold on to condemn the newly-crowned Turkish champions to their fifth defeat of the season.

However, during the game the 35-year-old striker and his Ivory Coast team-mate Emmanuel Eboue,
were whistled by sections of the home fans, with some of them also waving
bananas during the 2-1 victory for Fenerbahce.

Drogba took to the Galatasaray’s official Facebook page to respond to the abuse he received.

He wrote:”You call me monkey but you cried when Chelsea beat Fenerbahce in
2008, you called me monkey but you jumped in front of your screen when I won
the Champions League, you called me monkey but you got mad when I became
champion with Galatasaray and the saddest thing is you called me monkey and
forgot that you jumped my ‘monkey’ brother (who) scored twice yesterday (Pierre
Webo) … and you call yourself a true fan??”

As well as the abuse aimed at Drogba and Eboue, the game was also overshadowed by the stabbing of a Fenerbahce fan after the game.
