Ferguson: Gala atmosphere won't scare us

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United dodged a Galatasaray welcoming committee in Istanbul on Monday evening - but Sir Alex Ferguson insists a return to 'Hell' poses no problems.

It is 19 years since Ferguson led his newly-crowned English champions into the cauldron of the Ali Sami Yen stadium and ended up crashing out of Europe amid chaotic scenes.

Galatasaray have swapped stadiums since - to the plush Turk Telecom Arena - but their supporters remain some of the most fanatical in Europe. They turned out in vast numbers to await United's arrival, only to discover Ferguson and his players had exited through a separate terminal.
