Sir Alex Ferguson focusing on Galatasaray

Sir Alex Ferguson is preparing for the visit of Galatasaray  to Old Trafford next week but admits it is the trip to Istanbul in November that he is really looking forward too.

Ferguson speaking with MUTV said:

“Our fans don’t need reminding about Galatasaray, I remember our first game there, when we arrived at the airport and there were all these banners, ‘Welcome to Hell’.”

“Eric Cantona was sent off. Bryan Robson was hit by a policemen’s truncheon. It was a nightmare.

“The one good thing about that game is that the atmosphere will be fantastic. The fans will be in the stadium from lunchtime, shouting, singing and bawling. They make such a racket.”


The reds boss is also promising that Manchester United will not make the same mistakes as last years campaign.

“You always have to respect your opponents in this situation, Last year we were a bit careless with the group.

“It looked easy but didn’t turn out that way so there will be no complacency this time.

“I will play my best team to make sure we qualify.”


Enjoy that? Give it a share!
