He said: “We know we can [win away in Europe] and we are confident.

“The last games away from home in the league were also very hostile environments.

“We played very well. We were very calm and composed.

“You have to stay calm in your head and don’t get too emotional.

You need the emotions but you have to control it.

That at the precise moment they’re going to take, you don’t offer them anything and you don’t give the referee either.

We are aware of how to handle it. It doesn’t really matter how your opponent plays; you have to play with confidence and make it your game.

“It’s important how we are playing, how we are dealing with possession, how we are dealing with out of possession, so normal stuff.

“We will make a good plan but then, at the end of the day, the players have to decide, they have to manage the game.”

In United’s three trips to Galatasaray, who have adopted the Welcome to Hell chant popularised since their 1993 encounter with Alex Ferguson’s team, the team has not managed to score a single goal.
