Galatasaray became the champions of Turkish Super League by winning a home match against Sivasspor on Sunday. Galatasaray won the match by 4-2.
Burak Yilmaz and Selcuk Inan were the stand out players for Galatasaray in that match. Both of them found the back of the net twice and secured the title victory of their team.
This is the 19th time that Galatasaray has won this title. No other team has won this competition so many times. At no. 2, it’s Fenerbahce which has won the league 18 times.
The two African players (Emmanuel Eboue and Didier Drogba) who played a major role in Galatasaray’s success this season talked to the reporters after the match against Sivasspor.
When Eboue was asked how he is feeling, he said, “I would first like to thank the almighty. He has been really kind to us. It feels really good. We have done this for the second successive time. It’s a huge moment.”
“I would like to thank the fans of the club as well. They have been superb. They have given us incredible support throughout the season and we are really thankful for that.”
When asked about the manager of the club Fatih Terim, Eboue said, “He is a very nice person and a brilliant manager. He can be strict at times, but, all he does is for the good of the team.”
Drogba who had signed for Galatasaray during the mid season transfer window was also looking pretty happy in the press conference. The Ivorian International said, “This is my first season for the club and we have won the title. I can’t express in words how happy I am right now. I couldn’t have had a better debut season than this.”
Drogba has featured for Galatasaray in 11 matches this season and has found the net 5 times. He has also assisted 6 goals.
