Drogba and Eboue facing fines from the Turkish FA for Mandela shirts

That they showed AFTER the match
quote:


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'.

Others have remarked on the fact that players who celebrate goals with the Rabia sign, the four-fingered salute which has become the symbol of the Muslim brotherhood, born out of resistance to the military coup in Egypt.

It looks like they ironed that on themselves. Could Nike not hook them up? And I think we all know they would have pulled their shirts off to reveal those if they had scored.

I was wondering if Pienaar had something planned if he had scored.

Likely. He usually has something like "God is great" written on his undershirt
