Despite the exciting display by the entertainers, Van Basten was not impressed with the pre-match activities.

“It's crazy that this show is happening. No one comes to the stadium to see this. People go to watch football, not this," he said while working as a pundit on Match of the Day.

Meanwhile, Manchester City will be hoping to win a historic treble by beating Inter Milan in Istanbul. The English club have already secured the Premier League and FA Cup titles.

The Italian giants could also finish the season with the double if they beat Manchester City in the Turkish capital.
