Emmanuel Emenike and his Fenerbahce teammates had a flight scare and their plane had to make an emergency landing as they travelled to Manchester ahead of their Europa League clash with United.
The plane carrying the Fernebahce team diverted to the Budapest Airport in Hungary on Wednesday after a bird cracked the windshield shortly after take-off in a freak incident.
Turkish giants Fenerbahce revealed the news on social media but added on their Twitter account: ‘There is nothing alarming.’
Fenerbahce go into the clash top of Group A having taken four points from their opening two games while United trail them by one point.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports that Anthony Martial and Morgan Schneiderlin were both involved in United’s training session on Wednesday ahead of the Europa League clash.
Both players were missing from the matchday squad for Monday’s 0-0 Premier League draw at Liverpool after the pair suffered knocks in training on Saturday.
But they appear to be in contention to return when United host Fenerbahce in Group A on Thursday having been seen taking part in Wednesday morning’s session at the Red Devils’ Aon Training Complex in Carrington, the first 15 minutes of which were open to the media.
Midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who has missed the last seven games due to a thigh problem, was also involved.
