Noel Gallagher

Life-long Manchester City fan and Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher was less than complimentary about PSG cult figure Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Noel Gallagher has never been one for mincing his words, and that was certainly the case when quizzed on the subject of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Oasis legend has developed something of a reputation for his superb put-downs and his choice of words concerning Zlatan were no different.

Speaking in an interview with Swedish news outlet Afton Bladet, the Britpop icon really did not hold back.

Asked to comment on Zlatan, Gallagher said:

"This guy is a f**king idiot. I do not like him, he is full of crap.

"He is like my brother, he talks a lot but can’t back it up. Cool tattoos and a big mouth."

Ibrahimovic is famous not only for his memorable goals but also his outspoken opinions, so it’s not a massive shock to see the Oasis man speak of him in unfavourable terms.

Legend has it that, when offered a trial by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger in his younger days, the Sweden international told him: “Zlatan doesn’t do auditions.”

And despite counting Italy World Cup heroes like Alessandro Del Piero and Marco Materazzi among his friends, it looks highly unlikely that Ibrahimovic will be getting an invite to Gallagher's next gig any time soon.

Don’t look back in anger Zlatan!
