The midfielder has enough experience of Turkish football to know the best way of dealing with what is to come.
"It'll be hostile - the fans are really passionate," he said.
"I've not played against Galatasaray but I've been to Bursaspor and Besiktas and it's a unique atmosphere.
"It's a challenge and something we have to experience. For me it's a new stadium, a new occasion and you want to enjoy the experience. Hopefully that brings out the best in your performance."
