Manchester United legend Bruce has great respect for the City support.
He said: "The one thing you can never take away from them is the support. I remember them dropping down to Division Two and they'd have 30,000 every week.
"They've got a magnificent, truly loyal support.
"After being in the city for 10 years, they were always unbelievably well supported.
"In that respect, they are a truly big club."
