Luis Neto: “I am sure it will be a fantastic game in St. Petersburg”
The Portugal defender on the upcoming games with his former club in the Europa League.
It will not be very easy. Fenerbahce are definitely not the easiest opponent. Yes, now they are experiencing not the best period, but recently they got a new coach, who has previously led the team to success. Much will depend on what they do in January and if they can strengthen. In any case, it will not be easy. But we play the second leg at home and I am sure it will be a fantastic game in St. Petersburg.
Is it really as hard as people say to play in Istanbul?
Yes, the atmosphere there is one of the best I've ever seen in football. Their fans really help the team, but on the other hand, if we make them nervous, it can work the opposite way. But in general, I advise anyone who is thinking to go to Istanbul to go, it is a really great city.
