Noel Gallagher Says Sterling Should Give Caballero His Medal

Noel Gallagher has hinted that perhaps Raheem Sterling was lucky to have come away with a Capital One Cup medal.

Manchester City defeated Liverpool in the League Cup final at Wembley on Sunday, winning the penalty shootout 3-1, after it ended 1-1 at the end of extra-time.

Former Reds winger Sterling missed a golden opportunity to make it 2-0 in the second half, following Fernandinho's 49th-minute opener, but somehow placed his effort from just outside the six-yard box wide of the mark.

Philippe Coutinho equalised for Liverpool in the 83rd minute, making Sterling's miss costly, although Caballero spared his blushes with three fine saves in the shootout which prompted this reaction from Oasis legend Gallagher on ManCityTV.

"I think going into the shootout, he may have thought: 'Right, well this is it for me'," said the singer/songwriter of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

"He's a legend now forever, that's it. He's forever. Maybe before today he would have just been like another guy that played for us but he's one of us now.

"I think Sterling will be pretty pleased. He should give him his medal."

The cup was the fifth piece of silverware City have won since they clinched the 2011 FA Cup, excluding the Community Shield.
