Didier Drogba has hit back at the racist abuse he suffered from Fenerbahce fans during 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 Fener won the match 2-1.

In a message on Gala's official Facebook page, Drogba wrote: "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, 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 my 'monkey' brother (who) scored twice yesterday...And you call yourself a true fan??''

Pierre Webo, the Cameroon international, scored both of Fener's goals.

It was yesterday confirmed that a Fener fan was killed on the way home from the game after he was attacked by a group reported to be Galatasaray fans.
