The defender's poor backpass in the 36th minute here Wednesday was intercepted by Drogba and resulted in Galatasaray's goal, reports Xinhua.
"It was my mistake, as my pass was too short and unfortunately Drogba did well to take advantage of it. We know that in Europe you cannot get away with this sort of error," he said.
"On the first goal it was my individual goal, but other than that we ran very few risks. The moment we moved badly in defence, we conceded. I always said we had to improve in Europe and now we must work on what we've learned in this match," he said.
