Man Utd boss Solskjaer: We must silence Istanbul Basaksehir's ex-Prem stars

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is wary of facing Istanbul Basaksehir's ex-Premier League stars tonight.

United host Basaksehir tonight in their Champions League tie.

Solskjaer said, "Yeah, Demba Ba played really well and Martin Skrtel as well. The two of them showed their experience and their value to the team.

"We knew about them, we knew that they are seasoned professionals who have been around the block and they showed their quality. In the rest of the team there are Turkish internationals, Bosnian internationals, Norwegian internationals.

"There's good players there and of course it's always good to see Rafa. He's such a fantastic boy, but I want to see a smile on my face rather than his face after the game this time.

"Oh yeah, he's a Red through and through. I was disappointed when we let him go because he's such a valuable player and person to have in and around the group. He's just one of those players with Man United DNA so he knows what we feel about him and what I feel about him. We'll have a good conversation after the game. It's a fantastic family and of course I signed Fabio for Cardiff, so I've enjoyed their company many times."
