This further portrays the extent fanatics, enthusiasts and compulsive supporters can go to demonstrate their love and passion for their respective beloved teams and players.
The same intransigent passion lured one Galatasaray fan, who asked his friend to shave his back hair into Didier Drogba’s surname and squad number.
The fan shows just how highly revered and idolised the former Chelsea striker is in Istanbul, but Drogba wasn’t too lucky on Friday night after his side battled to a 0-0 draw with Kardemir in their domestic league.
Meanwhile, Roberto Mancini’s side head to Stanford Bride on Tuesday for their Champions League last 16 second-leg tie with Chelsea, and fans of the Turkish giants have a lot to contend with against Jose Mourinho’s side who slumped 1-0 away to Aston Villa on Saturday in the Barclays Premier League.
The first-leg in Istanbul ended 1-1,after Aurelian Chedjou’s strike cancelled out Fernando Torres’ first-half opener and Mancini already said his side have “an 80 per cent chance of going through” to the quarter finals.
Galatasaray currently second behind Fenerbahce in the Turkish Super Lig.
