Galatasaray inspired by Norwich City to beat Manchester United

Nordin Amrabat

Galatasaray winger Nordin Amrabat wants to follow Norwich City's example to earn a place with Manchester United in the Champions League knockout stages.

The Turkish side are second in Group H and a victory over the Reds, who have already qualified in top spot, would go a long way to securing second place.

Amrabat, 25, said they will take heart from the Canaries, who beat United at Carrow Road at the weekend.

"If Norwich can beat them, so can we," said the Morocco international.

Galatasary are further boosted by the news that United have left behind senior players Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Patrice Evra and David de Gea.

Amrabat, who played in his side's 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford earlier in the campaign, added: "It won't be easy but everybody needs to give 100% and play from the heart.

"If we want to qualify, this game is a chance for us.

"Generally, we are having an unlucky campaign but we are still in control of our fate."
