The 51-year-old, who also had a brief and disappointing spell with the Red Devils in season 1999/2000, reckons that the game will be exciting yet balanced.
“It’s not easy to make a prediction and, without fans, I think it’s anyone’s game.
“It’s going to be a well-balanced game. Old Trafford and San Siro are stadiums in which the fans get behind their teams and provide an extra push.
“The [Stadio Giuseppe] Meazza, like the one in Genova [the Stadio Luigis Ferraris], provide an extra buzz. They’re the most similar to English stadiums in that respect.
“The fans are really close to the pitch in these stadiums and it adds a little extra [to the atmosphere],” He finished.
