Didier Drogba came back to haunt Arsenal yet again as Galatasaray came from behind to defeat the Gunners, 2-1, in the Emirates Cup final. Drogba won a penalty that he converted in the 77th minute before sealing the win with a fantastic first touch and strike from a Wesley Sneijder feed with just two minutes remaining.
After the game, Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger was forced to reflect on another Drogba master-class against his team. While he praised the former Chelsea striker’s physical and intelligent play, the Frenchman bemoaned how easily he went down in the box to win the penalty. "The penalty was very, very, very, very soft," he said. "It was a classic Drogba."
