Man Utd fans outraged at how Galatasaray fans got in home end for 3-2 win at Old Trafford
| Last updated
Manchester United fans have been left outraged at how so many Galatasaray fans got in the home sections at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
Turkish champions Galatasaray twice came from behind to heap more misery on United, who suffered back-to-back home defeats and are still without a point in the Champions League this season.
Rasmus Hojlund struck a brace for Erik ten Hag's side but goals from Wilfried Zaha, Kerem Akturkoglu and Mauro Icardi - who made amends for his penalty miss with a gorgeous finish - saw Okan Buruk's side claim a memorable win.
Casemiro was sent out for two yellow cards to cap off a horrific night for United. But aside from the result, supporters were furious with their club for how they allowed thousands of Turkish fans in the United end.
Footage shared online by @Jack_H_20 showed the scenes at the Theatre of Dreams after the game at a largely empty stadium.
However, Galatasaray fans were still in the ground. They weren't just in the away end though, there were pockets of them all over the place.

It appears as though Gala fans had got their hands on tickets through the Manchester United foundation but it led to angry responses from Red Devils fans.
One fan fumed: "United will tout off their own fans to the tune of £400 and ban fans for passing on tickets to their mates for a meaningless cup game but let about 10k Galatasaray in the home end without any intervention. Felt like I was away in Istanbul. Absolutely disgusting from United."
A second explained: "Gifted my ticket to the foundation, United sold it on at the ticket office. Guess who was sat in my seat? A Galatasaray fan.
A third weighed in: "I was sat in S229, and it was all Gala fans…Me and 7 other lads were pretty much the only ones celebrating and I didn’t exactly feel the safest surrounded by them."
A fourth user said: "Fair play to these Galatasaray fans for staying on that United ticket waiting list I’ve heard so much about. We all know it’s impossible to get a ticket to United games so got to respect their patience."
Another supporter did not hold back, commenting: "I hate my club, genuinely, can’t stand the people who run this shambles. Greedy scum."
United return to action against Brentford in the Premier League on Saturday, while they desperately needed to win consecutive Champions League games against Copenhagen.
