Journeying to Turkey can always be a risky business!

Past experiences show that the fervour of their supporters often borders on the insane. Naturally, memories of past fixtures in Turkey spring to mind, particularly having to retreat to the dressing room under the protection of police riot shields and also Eric Cantana getting involved in a bit of a tussle with the local gendarmes!

Therefore, going to Turkey, you have to be aware of treading on any toes and ahead of the game Sir Alex was perfectly diplomatic when he commented, a tth epre-match press conference,

“You`ve got to respect anyone who is top of their league.”

“We don`t disrespect or under-rate Bursaspor. We`ve played Galatasaray, Fenerbache and Besiktas, and they`ve all been difficult games here.”


Difficult being the diplomatic word!
