Franco Baresi: “I think Paolo enjoyed the match.
“He came even though he knew this wasn’t the best stadium for him as Sunderland are big rivals of Newcastle.
“He’s a big player and a big man to play with a smile on his face.
“It was a fantastic night and a fantastic atmosphere.
“I want to say thank you to all the fans who filled the stadium. I was very happy for Steve. It was a successful event.
“It was for charity, but we wanted to play well for the people. We trained hard for this game.”
