Drogba to leave Galatasaray

Ivory Coast forward Didier Drogba has

announced that he is to leave Galatasaray

after one and a half seasons with the club.

The former Chelsea striker, 36, moved to

Istanbul in January last year and helped

Galatasaray win the Super Lig title and

Turkish Super Cup.

However, he will now seek a move elsewhere

after bringing down the curtain on his time

in Turkey.

"Galatasaray will always be in my heart,"

Drogba told the club's official TV channel.

"I'm very proud to have represented this


"I didn't come here for money. If I wanted

money I would have stayed in China (where

he played for Shanghai Shenhua).

"I came to Turkey to play football, to feel

the passion again.

"Scoring against Fenerbahce and Besiktas, I

think I gave some happiness to our fans."

Galatasaray finished second in the Turkish

Super Lig this season, nine points behind

champions Fenerbahce.

Drogba is set to be a key member of Ivory

Coast's squad at the FIFA World Cup.
