Predictably, Didier Drogba’s arrival in Istanbul provoked scenes of mad hysteria from the Galatasaray faithful, as the Ivorian striker joins up with his new team after completing the signing in the January transfer window.

The first clip below shows Drogba getting off the plane to officious applause, while the second shows the pyrotechnic show the Gala fans put on for Droga; followed by Drogba’s first interview as a Gala player below the fold.
