Former Oasis rock star Noel Gallagher was born and raised in Manchester, which means he's a big supporter of Man City, not United. Sunday was undoubtedly a big day for the club as they won their second Premier League title in a row after a thrilling 3-2 comeback victory over Aston Villa at the Etihad. In the process, Gallagher was headbutted by Ruben Dias' dad. Yes, you read that correctly.
“As the third Man City goal goes in there is absolute bedlam … in the stadium where we sit, Ruben Dias' family are in the box, a couple of boxes up.”
“So I'm jumping around like an idiot, passing my 11-year-old son around like the Premier League trophy, everyone is lifting him up. And I turn around and Ruben Dias' dad runs straight into me, headbutts me. I'm on the floor covered in blood.
“I don't see the last two minutes. I've got to get taken down by the St. John Ambulance and had to get stitched up. I've got stitches in my top lip, I've got two black eyes.”
Mayhem. Man City boss Pep Guardiola later hugged Gallagher as they briefly celebrated together and he also asked what was going on with his head. For what it's worth, Dias' father is a massive man. He didn't have a scratch on him from the accident, either. Gallager took the brunt of the damage.
