MCFC v AC Milan

City face the European super power of Milan a in their last pre-season friendly for the Thomas Cook Trophy.

Vital Quotes:

Valeri Bojinov on the game: For me to play against Milan it is very important because of the time I spent playing in Italy.

'They are a very big team and hopefully the boss will say to me 'Valeri you will play against Milan` because I`ll be happy and will want to score against them.'

He concludes with: 'It will also be very special for me to return to the City of Manchester Stadium and play in front of the supporters.'

Manchester City FC Team News:

Strikers Jo and Benjani are still unavailable; but there is no news on any other injuries throughout the squad and so Mark Hughes has plenty to choose from for this friendly.

Player to watch: Martin Petrov

The Bulgarian wing wizard has started the pre-season of with a bang as his fine goal against Celtic on Wednesday showed.

AC Milan Team News:

AC Milan have an embarrassment of riches in their squad and with their season starting two weeks later you would probably expect Milan to make a few more changes than City.

Player to watch: Kaka

The Brazilian is a masterful footballer who with one pass can destroy a team.
