The former Chelsea striker and fellow Ivorian Emmanuel Eboue were subjected to monkey chants from the crowd as Fener won the match 2-1.
In a message on Gala's official Facebook page, Drogba wrote: "You call me monkey but you cried when Chelsea beat Fenerbahce in 2008, you called me monkey but you jumped in front of your screen when I won the Champions League, you called me monkey but you got mad when I became champion with Galatasaray and the saddest thing is you called me monkey and forgot that you jumped my 'monkey' brother (who) scored twice yesterday...And you call yourself a true fan??"
Pierre Webo, the Cameroon international, scored both of Fener's goals.
It was yesterday confirmed that a Fener fan was killed on the way home from the game after he was attacked by a group reported to be Galatasaray fans.
