The PSV first team squad has arrived in Istanbul. The plane landed at Istanbul Airport at about 18:30 local time, after which buses, accompanied by police cars, quickly drove to town. PSV traveled to Turkey one day earlier than usual, because of the three-hour flight and the one-hour time difference. Ronald Koeman will conduct a training session in the Atatürk Olympic Stadium on Tuesday night and Wednesday night’s UCL clash with Galatasaray kicks off at 21:45 local time. PSV sponsors, members of the boards and other officials will attend a welcome party tonight. Frits Schuitema will represent the club for the first time in his capacity as Chairman during a foreign trip. PSV have been in Istanbul before: last season they met Fenerbahçe SK here. On Wednesday they will meet again former PSV coach Erik Gerets. As might have been expected, PSV attracted great interest on arrival. Head coach Ronald Koeman and captain Phillip Cocu in particular received a great deal of media attention.
