Some might say Manchester City have found a brighter day.
Noel Gallagher certainly thinks so, with the rock ‘n’ roll star saying Pep Guardiola has City playing the greatest football he’s ever seen.
As a die-hard fan, the Oasis legend did not hold back on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast about his unwavering love for the Sky Blues’ boss.
He said: “He’s just like one of the lads. He’s a dude, man, he’s a proper dude.
“I literally go into that ground when I go and watch that team and think this is the greatest thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life.”
Gallagher is dipping his toe into football punditry on Sunday, swapping the guitar for the Sky Sports sofa at Old Trafford.
And he is absolutely dreading the game, expecting Jose Mourinho to field a team of assassins against Pep’s twinkle-toed stars.
He added: “Fellaini will be going out given strict instructions to kill either one of Silva or De Bruyne. Or both.
“I don’t like derby day, I’ve never enjoyed it. It’s too stressful.
“Genuine football supporters will want to get the derby out of the way.
“Wake up, call it a draw, and move on.”
