“They are our big rivals but I remember Fener and Besiktas both did a fantastic job. We have drawn at Old Trafford in the past, but now we hope to follow them. We want to achieve something exactly as our rivals did. It would have been better to play against Cluj or Braga. Then we could have gained more experience. Instead we have to play against one of the best sides in the world immediately. Manchester United have been so successful in the Champions League for many years,” said Fatih Terim ahead of the opening Champions League match for this season.
