Noel Gallagher said you cant have it when son brought football poster home

Manchester City fan Noel Gallagher has banned his son from hanging up a Cristiano Ronaldo poster in his room.

The Manchester United forward is Sonny’s favourite player – but the High Flying Birds frontman has said that any picture of the Portuguese superstar is not allowed.

Gallagher claimed that his son brought the poster home during Ronaldo’s time at Real Madrid – however at the time, he did not know that the star was a United legend.

When the former Oasis singer was on Pub Talk podcast, hosted by Alan Brazil and Ray Parlour, he explained how he banned Sonny from having the image.

"The young lad, Sonny, plays for his local team and went for trials for the county,” Gallagher said. “He's enthusiastic, has a good shot and great positional play. I'd rather him be a footballer, they get paid more than musicians."

He continued: "But it was a funny day when he started really identifying with players. He didn't realise Ronaldo had played with United and he came home with a Ronaldo poster.

"I was like, 'Mate, what are you doing?' He was like, 'I love Ronaldo, he's my favourite player.' But I told him, 'You can't have it in this house, mate' and I had to show him a picture of him in a United kit because he had only ever known him as playing for Real Madrid and Juventus."

The conversation between the two talkSPORT presenters led to a chat on Erling Haaland, his awkward meeting with Pep Guardiola on the final day of last season after the club won, and even Arsenal fans.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta was Guardiola’s assistant at City before he took the plunge and took over in north London. And Gallagher believes that former Citizens player Gabriel Jesus, who trained under Arteta, will continue to thrive in north London.

"Arsenal fans, they are a weird lot, right,” Gallagher said. “Arteta will lose a few games and they'll want him out. But he's been taught by the best and he's brought in two players thought by the best. It's not rocket science. Arsenal will become like City if they run the club right.

“The difference between us, them and United is United have a load of businessmen buying the players. But City have former players who have been at Barcelona and not just trying to balance the books. All the great teams have been run by football people – Ferguson, Wenger, Mourinho.”
