Rock star Liam Gallagher, one of Manchester City’s staunchest fans, gave an impromptu press conference to amused reporters after City’s 1-0 win over United on Monday.
Wearing sunglasses and beaming a huge smile, the often irascible former frontman of Oasis was in party mood, saying: “What do you want to know lads? ... top of the league. Well done City.”
He said he spent some time with Diego Maradona during the match - Maradona was there to watch his son-in-law Sergio Aguero play for City - and then joked that he loved City manager Roberto Mancini.
“I love him, he’s so cool, he’s almost as cool as me,” he said.
