Hamit Altintop insists that he is fully focused on leading Galatasaray to victory over his old club Schalke in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Galatasaray midfielder Hamit Altintop has insisted that he will not be swayed by emotions when he faces his former club Schalke on Tuesday.

The Turkish giants are in Gelsenkirchen for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie, having drawn the first leg 1-1 in Istanbul last month.

"All in all, I will approach the match professionally," ESPN quotes Altintiop as saying. "I want to qualify for the quarter-finals, that's what I am after."

Altintop played for Schalke for four years between 2003 and 2007.
