    Greater Manchester Police made the appeal Wednesday, releasing video footage and still pictures.

    Police said the 46-year-old victim had intervened during an altercation between the offender and a woman outside the Stadio Olimpico before United lost to Barcelona in May.

    The victim was threatened by the offender, but the attack didn't come until they later came face-to-face again in the stadium.

    Police said that "the offender saw the victim again inside the stadium and without provocation, violently attacked him."

    The offender was wearing a blue United away shirt.
