Former Oasis member Noel Gallagher has once again made headlines with his audacious promise.
In a recent interview, Gallagher declared that if Manchester City win the Champions League and their star striker Erling Haaland scores a hat-trick in the final against Inter, he will perform a live gig with his band, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, in San Diego, wearing nothing but his underpants!
This eccentric commitment comes after a picture emerged of Gallagher and Haaland in the City dressing room, with the Norwegian forward sporting only his underwear while posing with the legendary Mancunian rock star.
Inspired by this memorable encounter, Gallagher has put forth a proposition that would undoubtedly grab global attention.
Gallagher’s admiration for Haaland is evident in his description of the young player, praising him as a “lovely lad” with a “beautiful, big smile” who exudes a carefree and joyful spirit.
It is this affinity for Haaland that has spurred Gallagher to make such an outlandish promise, one that is now capturing the imagination of football and music fans alike.
While Gallagher won’t be present in Istanbul for the Champions League final due to prior commitments, he has made it clear that he will be closely following the game from a bar in San Diego.
His contractual obligations as a musician mean that he cannot back out of the scheduled gig, regardless of the outcome of the match.
If Manchester City emerge victorious and Haaland achieves the remarkable feat of scoring a hat-trick, Gallagher will take to the stage in his underpants, ready to entertain his fans in a truly unconventional fashion.
Reflecting on City’s recent Champions League final loss to Chelsea, Gallagher revealed that it was the most disheartened he has ever felt as a City fan.
He expressed a preference for winning the prestigious trophy under normal circumstances, in a stadium filled to capacity, rather than in a reduced-capacity venue due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Nonetheless, Gallagher remains optimistic, acknowledging City’s successes in the Premier League and the FA Cup this season, and highlighting the potential for this campaign to be remembered as one of the greatest in football history.
As the anticipation builds for the Champions League final and Gallagher’s bold promise hangs in the balance, football enthusiasts and music aficionados alike eagerly await the outcome.
With fingers crossed and dreams of victory, fans everywhere will be watching, eager to witness this extraordinary event.
