However, he recently managed to get a host of fans onside by taking aim at several Premier League clubs.
He responded by saying: “Yeah of course. Manchester United are number one, and second one…
“We don’t have a second one I think, just Manchester United.”
Fans took to social media to react to Bayindir’s comment, with one person writing: “I’m in love with Altay!”
Another commented: “I love him .”
A third fan wrote: “Something about this guy I really like.”
While a fourth added: “Idk why I love him. he’s so likeable and he’s done nothing yet.”
Bayindir went on to reveal that he idolised Man Utd legend Edwin van der Sar growing up.
He added: “My favourite goalkeeper is Edwin van der Sar, he is a legend. I watched a lot of Manchester United games.”
The Turkey international could make his Man Utd debut this weekend when the Red Devils travel to Goodison Park to face Everton.
He was subsequently forced to withdraw from the squad after undergoing tests with the medical team.
The 27-year-old is now at risk of being sidelined for a number of weeks.
