Former Super Eagles striker, Emmanuel Emenike and his Fenerbache teammates cheated death yesterday as the team’s plane carrying players to Manchester ahead of their Europa league clash against United on Thursday night ran into some trouble on its way to the City and was forced into an emergency landing.
The plane that was initially traveling from Istanbul to Manchester was forced to land in Budapest.
A bird crashed into the plane cracking the front windshield which must have caused blurred vision for the pilot and hence the forced landing.
Their official twitter account sent out an update saying that there was no harm done and the players were all safe.
A second plane was sent from Istanbul to pick them up at Budapest and ensure they arrived in Manchester.
