Pep Guardiola sings along to Wonderwall at We Are Manchester concert

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola sang along to Noel Gallagher’s version of Oasis classic Wonderwall as he joined the huge crowd at the We Are Manchester benefit concert to mark the reopening of Manchester Arena. 

The night had added poignancy for the Spaniard as he said his wife and daughters were at the Ariana Grande concert on May 22.

Fresh from his team’s 5-0 Premier League thumping of Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, Guardiola revealed he was invited to the Arena as a special guest of City fan Noel.

He said it was important to return to ‘normality’ while remembering those who lost their lives and all who were affected by the atrocity.

Guardiola said he was happy that the public could once again go to the Arena for gigs, shows and sporting events – and his family weren’t worried about returning.

Laughing as he revealed that he joined in with the mass Wonderwall singalong, City’s manager said: “I enjoyed this lovely evening.

“I was a lucky guy, Noel Gallagher invited me to see the concert after what happened. It is good to come back to normality and see that life is going on, but remember the families that suffer.”

Proceeds from the night are being used to raise money towards a permanent memorial to those killed.
