Drogba & Sneijder thank Galatasaray fans after title triumph

The Istanbul giants sealed their second straight title on Sunday and the star duo say that supporters deserve to be rapid by the players
Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder have paid tribute to Galatasaray supporters after winning the Super Lig crown.

Fatih Terim's side retained their title with a 4-2 win against Sivasspor on Sunday and the two January acquisitions wanted to acknowledge the club's fans for their backing over the season.

"We are happy to be champions with these fans. We have best fans in the world," the Dutchman told reporters after the game.

And Drogba added: "I am very happy to be part of this team. Our fans deserve everything."

Club president Unal Aysal, meanwhile has paid tribute to the tutelage of Terim and insists the team will give their all against arch rivals Fenerbahce next week.

"Sometimes we had some problems. But we have had two successful seasons. Terim is going to be with us next year. After the elections [in May 2014], the new management will decide his future," he said.

"The Fenerbahce match is always important for both teams. Being champions is not important in that match. I am sure it will be a good match."

Finally, Terim, who is enjoying his third spell coaching the club, believes their efforts across the campaign have merited the title.

"I am so happy. Being champions is a very special emotion. We deserve to be champions. I thank to all of our fans."
