Galatasaray pair Didier Drogba and Emmanuel Eboue will be punished by the Turkish FA (TFF) for the Nelson Mandela tributes that followed their team’s 2-0 victory over Elazigspor on Friday.
Former Chelsea striker Drogba paid his respects to the former South African president and freedom fighter, who died on Thursday aged 95, by removing his Gala jersey to reveal a vest which read ‘Thank You Madiba’.
Drogba’s fellow Ivorian Eboue, formerly of Arsenal, followed suit, donning a vest which read ‘Rest In Peace Nelson Mandela’.The TFF plans to summon both players before a disciplinary committee as part of a wider crackdown on imagery and messages that they deem to be political, with a fine or a likely sanction.
But Drogba has already replied them. He took to his instagram page and said, he will do it over and over again.
