Fenerbahce welcomed Manchester United to Turkey but treated the Red Devils to an incredibly rude reception, winning 2-1 on the day. It was disappointment for United, but amazing for the neutral supporter because every single one of the goals was an absolute treat to watch,
Fenerbahce didn’t even give United a chance to settle in and get a feel for the match, as Moussa Sow promptly proceeded to score one of the best goals of the year just one minute in.
Jeremain Lens is on loan from Sunderland, and he knows United pretty well from his short time in England. He netted a perfect free kick to double Fener’s lead, and there was absolutely nothing David De Gea could do about it.
Wayne Rooney wasn’t to be outdone, and he showed some signs of life, nailing a 30-yard bomb to cut the lead in half and give Reds supporters a little bit of hope.
Hope was in short supply for United fans in Turkey though, and they not only saw their team lose, but Paul Pogba limp off with an apparent ankle injury. At least they can take solace that Roons is back on the scoresheet. Right?
