The Chelsea legend spoke of his decision to leave in an interview with the clubs official TV channel.

Drogba stated, "Galatasaray will always be in my heart, I'm very proud to have represented this team.

Drogba also stated, "Jose Mourinho and Wesley Sneijder had a big impact on my decision to sign. Jose said to me 'if Wesley is going then you should go to', so I came."

"It was great to have a chance to play alongside him [Sneijder]."
