Benjamin Mendy sings ‘Wonderwall’ with Noel Gallagher as Man City celebrate Carabao Cup win

Benjamin Mendy was seen singing ‘Wonderwall’ with Noel Gallagher in the Wembley dressing room on Sunday afternoon.

It comes after Manchester City beat Aston Villa 2-1 to win the Carabao Cup.

It was the third time the Etihad outfit had won the competition in succession and the second trophy of the season.

City beat Liverpool on penalties in this season’s Community Shield and they remain in the hunt for the Champions League .

The Premier League , however, looks out of sight with Liverpool 22 points clear at the top.

But that did not stop the celebrations, led by the charismatic Mendy and former Oasis frontman Gallagher.

Pep Guardiola has met the British popstar on multiple occasions at City matches.

Gallagher hugged the Catalan coach at full-time and he was given access to the Wembley dressing room after the match.

With the trophy present, him and Mendy danced in front of the squad singing along to ‘Wonderwall’.

The 52-year-old is a regular fixture behind the scenes at City’s matches.

He was also there last week when they came back from 1-0 down at the Bernabeu, cheering as the Premier League champions beat Zinedine Zidane’s men 2-1.

This time, a trophy was landed in the process.

And after 30 minutes at Wembley, it looked like it was going to be an easy Sunday for Guardiola’s men.

Sergio Aguero netted early on before Rodri scored a header from a controversial corner.

However, Mbwana Samatta netted following a slip from John Stones to give Villa hope.

Despite Dean Smith’s side attempting to batter down the door, City held on to land the Carabao Cup and Guardiola was over the moon, insisting his team’s success is unrivalled.

“Since we started to win, the last nine [domestic] competitions we played, we won eight,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“That is awesome. No club before in the history of domestic trophies, not counting Europe, won the amount of titles in a row we have won.

“Not even the biggest Liverpool in the 80s, the biggest Manchester United with Sir Alex Ferguson or Jose Mourinho, or Arsene Wenger [with Arsenal).

“These clubs were amazing but were never able to win in the last nine titles, domestic eight.”
