Istanbul Basaksehir fullback Clichy hoping to face Man Utd

Former Arsenal and Manchester City defender Gael Clichy says it would be "special and tremendous" if his side Istanbul Basaksehir were to face Manchester United in the Europa League.

The Turkish champions travel to FC Copenhagen in the last 16 on Wednesday with a 1-0 lead from the first leg.

A quarter-final tie with United would await, providing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side see off LASK.

"It's no secret I love England," Clichy said.

"We have to win our first game and that will be hard, so we cannot afford to think about United.

"But if we go through and play United, it would be special and tremendous. We would play with our quality."
