During Tuesday night’s UEFA Champions League match between Galatasaray and Manchester United, Galatasaray manager Okan Buruk admitted he instructed his team to focus on Manchester United midfielder Casemiro.
Buruk saw Galatasaray win 3-2 against Man United at Old Trafford in the Champions League.
We tried to put pressure on Casemiro in the middle with (Lucas) Torreira,” Buruk remarked in his postgame interview.
Kaan (Ayhan) is an excellent defender and off-ball player. We planned to put them to use in tandem.
Kaan, in my opinion, has helped greatly. He backed me up,” etc.
Man United now sits in last place in Group A after their loss to Galatasaray, adding to their earlier defeat against Bayern Munich earlier this month.
Meanwhile, Galatasaray are in second place, one game behind the leaders.
The Turkish powerhouses trail league-leaders Bayern Munich.
