Chelsea legend Didier Drogba congratulated his former Galatasaray teammates for winning the 2014-15 Süper Lig title.

Drogba tweeted, “Congrats to my people @sneijder10official @_felipemeloo_ @aurelienchedjou21 @colakemre52 @bruma_11 @1nando_1 @alextelles13 #burakYilmaz #semihKaya #selcukinan #korayGunter #umutbulut @aydinylmz7 #hamitAltintop #hakanBalta #yekta.”

Galatasaray won the Süper Lig title for the 20th time and earned the right to wear a fourth star on their shirt next season.

The Lions beat Beşiktaş 2-0 in the Istanbul derby on the weekend but needed Fenerbahçe to drop points against Başakşehir to win the championship.

Fenerbahçe ended up drawing 2-2 against fourth placed Başakşehir and dropping out of the title race.
