That was quick! Didier Drogba’s individual highlights on goalscoring Galatasaray debut

Didier Drogba Galatasaray debut 2901466 That was quick! Didier Drogbas individual highlights on goalscoring Galatasaray debutAfter all the hype and Istanbul lockdown surrounding his transfer to Galatasaray, there’s a certain amount of pressure on Didier Drogba’s shoulders.

After all, he’s coming off the back of what was essentially a huge waste of time (albeit not financially) at Shanghai Shenua; his reputation is very much at stake.

Coming off the disappointment of Ivory Coast’s AFCON campaign, a good start to Gala life was just what Drogba needed, and he certainly ensured that on his debut!

Coming off the bench in the second half, the Drog scored a cracking header within just 5 minutes of his entrance, setting Gala on their way to a 2-1 win away at Akhisar.

Clearly in the mood, Drogba was then instrumental in Gala’s second, playing a neat one-two, before seeing his chance spill over to team mate Burak Yilmaz, who finished it off.

What a debut!
