Galliani is a notoriously tense presence in the stands and admits he didn’t see three of the evening’s four goals in Brussels.
“I didn’t see the opening goal and it’s the first time it has happened. I was talking to the cycling legend Eddy Merckx, there was a queue of people and I couldn’t get back to my seat in time. I didn’t see Pato’s goal either, as I was already hiding in the locker room. Basically I didn’t see anything!
“To be honest, I didn’t see the Anderlecht goal, as whenever they put a dangerous cross in, I turn away and get my son to give me commentary!”
