A bird cracked the plane’s windshield shortly after take-off and the pilot had to steer the aircraft to safety at the Budapest Airport in Hungary.

“There is nothing alarming,” a tweet on Fenerbahce’s Twitter account said.

The Turkish team are billed to take on Manchester United, in a Europa League Group A fixture.

Fenerbahce are top of the group, one point ahead of Thursday night’s hosts United.

“They want to score but they did not. You have to ask, why not?

“If you want to play for the championship you need more. And I don’t just mean Van Persie, I mean the total team.”
