Drogba Boosts his CV as his club Galatasaray win record-breaking 19th league title


In recent years, there's been a debate going on about who the most decorated African footballer is, Didier Drogba might have a big say in that as he and his Galatasaray side sealed a record 19th Turkish league title by beating Sivasspor 4-2 in Istanbul.

Two goals from both Selcuk Inan and Burak Yilmaz gave Fatih Terim's side victory with Sivasspor only able to respond though Kadir Bekmezci and Cihan Ozkara.

Substantial: The champions have a 10-point lead at the top of the table with two games left to play
Bragging rights: Bitter rivals Fenerbahce have won 18 titles
The victory, following Fenerbahce's 2-0 defeat by Istanbul BB, took them ahead of the former's 18 titles, and gives another title in another country to former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

Drogba played from start to finish but playmaker Wesley Sneijder, signed from Inter Milan and like Drogba a Champions League winner, played just under an hour.

The prolific Yilmaz, incidentally, this season now has 21 league goals, with Galatasaray are now 10 points clear at the top of the table with only two games left to play.


Mastermind: Fatih Terim is Galatasaray's coach
Manager Faith Terim was banned for nine matches in April for criticising the referee during a league game against Mersin Idmanyurdu and missed being on the bench for the triumph as a result of his suspension.

He at the time said he 'will lead this team from the moon' if he had to, so in tribute, several fans in the stadium were seen wearing space suits.
