Bayindir says goodbye

Fenerbahce were in action last night in Europa Conference League qualifying, beating FC Twente.

Bayindir was named on the bench, rather than in his usual role as a starter. New signing Dominik Livakovic was not registered in time to play, so Irfan Egribayat was in goal.

A video showed Bayindir walking on the pitch at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium, waving goodbye to supporters.

What Manchester United are looking for in a back-up goalkeeper

Altay Bayindir ticks the boxes for what Manchester United are looking for in a back-up goalkeeper to deputise Andre Onana.

He is cheap, at around £6 million, a good age to develop at 25, and already a senior international for his country with five caps.

Bayindir had four appearances already this season and has 145 games for Fenerbahce to his name, with 44 clean sheets.

If Andre Onana does head to the African Nations Cup in January, Bayindir has the experience and recent match action to be ready to step in.

A brief Fred crossover

Altay Bayindir has had a brief crossover with new Fenerbahce signing Fred, who provided his first assist for his new club in their 5-1 win last night.

They did however, not play alongside each other, with Bayindir on the bench for Fred’s two appearances so far.

At the very least, they will have spent brief time together, and the Brazilian will likely have imparted some advice to the Manchester United bound goalkeeper.
