Martin Skrtel is exalted with his victory over Manchester United
On November 3 of the ongoing year,Fenerbahce received Manchester United at the ŞükrüSaracoğlu Stadium in Ishtabul and they managed to secure a 2-1 triumph over the Premier League titans.
Martin Skrtel performed during the entirety of that match and he wasted no time in voicing his joy after being able to defeat the rival club of his former team. As a former Liverpool player, being able to overcome Manchester United is something that feels more significant for him.
The 31 year old player Martin Skrtel wrote on his Instagram account: ‘’Yessss, we did it! Perfect night! Thanks for the support,atmosphere was brilliant! Ps: Victory against MU always feels better YNWA’’
Fenerbahce got ahead in the scoreboard through Moussa Sow as he scored at the 2nd minute and Jeremain Lens extended the lead to 2 goals at the 59th minute and even though Wayne Rooney tried to put his team back into the game by finding the back of the net in the last few minutes of the match, it wasn’t enough as the final scoreboard displayed 2-1 in favor of the Turkish club.
Skrtel is a regular starter for Fenerbahce and even though the Turkish outfit have recently been going through a string of positive results, this recent triumph over Manchester United was a particularly memorable one for the veteran player as it was a victory over one of his rival clubs and because this triumph immensely helps out Fenerbahce in their journey of advancing into the next rounds of the Europa League.
This triumph has positioned Fenerbahce at the top of Group A with 7 points collected from the 4 matches that they have played so far while Manchester United are in 3rd place with 6 points, Jose Mourinho and his squad are actually in danger of being knocked-out from the group stages of the Europa League unless they start to win games.
