Didier Drogba set to be Gala's player-manager

Galatasaray has reported in their official website that the recent developments in the club have started damaging club values. Media also have been elaborating discord between the coach and the club’s management.

The 60 year old was set to take charge of the Turkish national team for their 2014 WC qualifiers together with the Galatasaray job.

However, with the manager gone, Didier Drogba is supposed to take in charge of the Istanbul team as a player-manager for the first time in his life.

Didier Drogba, the hero of one of the biggest English football stadium, Wembley might get a chance at starting his managerial career at the Istanbul Club.

Galatasaray are currently 10th in the league and they suffered a humiliating 6-1 defeat against Real Madrid at home in their Champion League group B match last week.

Their derby against Besiktas was also halted on the 93rd minute after thousands of fans jumped to the pitch when Felipe Melo was sent off the field with a red card.

Galatasaray were leading the game 2-1 after they saw Didier Drogba’s goal in the third minute of the added time just before the game was put to halt for the safety of the players.
