Furious Drogba hits back at Fenerbahce fans over shocking 'monkey' taunts aimed towards former Chelsea striker

Didier Drogba has hit back at the racist abuse he suffered from Fenerbahce fans in the Istanbul derby against Galatasaray on Sunday.

The former Chelsea striker and fellow Ivorian Emmanuel Eboue were subjected to monkey chants from the crowd as Fenerbache won the match 2-1.

Drogba, whose Galatasaray team have already secured the Turkish championship, wasted little time in highlighting that both Fenerbahce goals were scored by Cameroon striker Pierre Webo.

Unimpressed: Galatasaray's Didier Drogba has hits out at racist abuse he received

Drogba said on Galatasaray's Facebook page: 'You call me monkey but you cried when Chelsea beat Fenerbahce in 2008, you called me monkey but you jumped in front of your screen when I won the Champions League.
Unimpressed: Drogba responded to Fenerbahce fans' abuse
'You called me monkey but you got mad when I became champion with Galatasaray and the saddest thing is you called me monkey and forgot that you jumped when my 'monkey' brother scored twice yesterday... and you call yourself a true fan? Check all the Galatasaray fans comments and learn from them.'
Chill out: Drogba tries to calm the situation down
Abuse: A supporter of Turkish football club Fenerbahce holds a banana in his hand as Galatasaray players arrived
A man claiming to be the supporter who waved the banana told a local television show that he had the fruit in his hand to eat but declined to give his name.

'I didn't wave the banana with the aim of racism, I just joined a jeering against (Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando) Muslera.

'I am not like that. I apologise to Fenerbahce and Galatasaray fans,' he added.
