Police have advised anyone dressed up as the Belgian’s touch to avoid visiting the elderly, or those with a nervous disposition.

There are genuine fears that some Old Trafford season-ticket holders may go into shock if they come face-to-face with their biggest fear.

“Me and my mates are going to trick-or-treat the Lowry Hotel, see if we can make Jose pass out through fear.”
