Oasis brothers united as Liam and Noel want City to stick with Mancini despite Cup defeat
The Gallagher brothers may have been at odds for years but there is one thing Liam and Noel can agree on and that is that Roberto Mancini should remain as manager of their beloved Manchester City.
The former Oasis pair were both at Wembley – separately - to watch City lose the FA Cup final to Wigan and put on record their support for Mancini.
The Italian's days at City looked numbered after it was reported over the weekend that Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini was being lined up at the Etihad.
But both Gallagher brothers want to see Mancini remain at the club.
Speaking before the final, Beady Eye frontman Liam told ESPN: ‘I think Mancini should stay. Mancini has won us the league for the first time in 40 years, as well as The FA Cup.
‘I’m not into this [idea of] getting rid of people, you need some consistency, so I’m all for Mancini.
And older brother Noel seemed to be singing from the same song sheet as he backed Mancini to stay after the defeat by Wigan.
He told FA TV: ‘What really annoys me is losing gives every justification for Mancini to lose his job. It gives people a reason to do it, which is a shame because I think he should stay.’
Before the game Noel had been full of confidence, boldly predicting that City could win with eight men with either Sergio Aguero or Carlos Tevez netting a hat-trick.
He said: ‘We should beat this lot with eight men and I think we are going to see a hat-trick today, either Carlos or Aguero.’
But by the end of the game Gallagher Snr was full of praise for Wigan after their win, saying: ‘Fair play to them for sticking at it. I thought they would blow out after 75 minutes, so respect for them for going for it.
'It sums up our season really, we were 20-odd goals short in league and we could not stick it in the back of the net today.’
