The Drog has landed
Yesterday afternoon around 15.30 British time, Didier Drogba landed on Turkish soil after representing his native Ivory Coast in South Africa at the African Cup of Nations.
Just like when Wesley Sneijder landed at Istanbul's Atatürk airport, thousands of parçalı fans flocked to see their new signing; Drogba has signed a deal with the current Süper Lig champions for one and a half years.
On Galatasaray's Facebook page it stated that Drogba mentioned that "I am very happy to be here. This is a new adventure. Now I will give everything for the success of the club and meet fans."
Drogba will be unveiled to the fans tomorrow at the Türk Telekom Arena, the Lions face Medical Park Antalyaspor in an evening kick off.
It has been reported that the former Marseille, Chelsea, and Shanghai Shenhua player will be paid ten million euros during his year and a half stay in Turkey as well as receiving a fifteen thousand euro bonus for each match the Ivorian features in.
Drogba will once again be playing Champions League football with his new club, as the Lions face Bundesliga side Schalke this month.
