Emenike, Fernabache teammates escape plan crash enroute Manchester

A plane carrying the Fenerbahce first-team squad including Emmanuel Emenike to Manchester has been diverted after a bird flew into the cockpit window.

The Turkish giants are scheduled to face Manchester United in the Europa League on Thursday night but they will now arrive in England later than planned.

After being forced to make an emergency landing in Budapest, the club posted four images of the cracked cockpit window.


The tweet said: “Kafilemizi leads to Manchester due to bird strike on the glass plane. Plane made a forced landing in Budapest. There is nothing alarming.”

Fenerbahce currently top Group A ahead of the game at Old Trafford.


Ajike is one of Nigeria's top Sportscasters with over 15 years of experience in writing and talking Sports.
