A plane carrying Turkish soccer club Fenerbahce to play a Europa League game against Manchester United was forced to make an emergency stop in Budapest on Wednesday due to a ruptured windscreen.

"A Borajet 195/200 long range type of aircraft, registration number TC/YAT, made a successful emergency landing here shortly after midday," Budapest airport's spokesman Mihaly Hardy told AFP.

"The Fenerbahce players were on board and are now safely waiting in the terminal building for another aircraft, on which they will continue their journey to England."

The club added in a ­statement from Istanbul that a bird had hit the cockpit window.
