DIDIER Drogba and Emmanuel Eboue face fines from the Turkish FA after displaying vests bearing tributes to Nelson Mandela.

The two Ivory Coast internationals unveiled their personal messages after Galatasaray’s game against Elazigspor on Friday, their first game after the death of South African icon Mandela.

Chelsea legend Drogba peeled off his shirt at the 2-0 win to reveal a tribute which said: ‘Thank you Madiba’ and former Arsenal defender Eboue’s vest said: ‘Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela’.

The Turkish FA (TFF) are planning to summon the Galatasaray pair to appear before the
Professional Football Discipline Committee because they had not sought prior permission to display their messages.
It is in contrast to England where games this weekend have been preceded by a minute of applause in celebration of Mandela’s life and his role in ending apartheid in South Africa and transforming the international profile of Africa.

Plans to discipline Drogba and Eboue are certain to attract criticism and fuel debate in Turkey, where the TFF are trying to keep political imagery out of football as directed by FIFA, although it has proved increasingly difficult in a football-crazy nation beset by political tension.

Fined or not - the great Nelson Mandela went through worse.

Continue to rest in peace - man of the world.

Your enemies will have to go through God to touch you now!

The Turkish FA (TFF) planning to summon the Galatasaray pair to appear before the Professional Football Discipline Committee is hopelessness in d 1st place, In Turkey there are racist against Black players, what have they done about that?. People are celebrating Mandela's death everywhere in d World so, what's wrong if Footballers did the same? But in England, a minute was applauded in celebration of Mandela’s life and his role in ending apartheid in South Africa and transforming the international profile of Africa.

Different country with different rules....... but i wonder how some stupid Nigerian respond to issues.... U need to use your brain. If anything happen u keep on shouting Muslims or Islam. but When any bad thing happen from someone of your faith all you will say is END of TIME....... I think before u make any comment u should think well.
