More Football News

A plane carrying players and officials of Turkish side Fenerbahce for Thursday's Europa League clash at Manchester United has been forced to make an unscheduled landing in Budapest.

A message posted on the club's official Twitter page just before midday on Wednesday said a forced landing was made in the Hungarian capital after a bird struck the aircraft's windscreen.

The message was accompanied by photographs apparently of the plane's windscreen, with the glass covered in cracks.

Fenerbahce added in the message: "There is nothing alarming".

The club is scheduled to hold a press conference at Old Trafford at 6pm on Wednesday, followed by a training session, ahead of Thursday's Group A match.
