After 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!
Watch Didier Drogba’s highly productive Galatsaray debut below the fold (with awesome Player Cam), followed by his goal and involvement in the second.
