Diego Maradona once threatened to have Oasis singer Liam Gallagher SHOT after bizarre meeting in an Argentine bar

LIAM GALLAGHER has revealed that Diego Maradona threatened to shoot him when they met in a bar in Argentina.

Oasis were on tour in South America, when they decided to go for a drink after a gig.

And they happened to bump into none other than the late, great, Diego Maradona.

The Argentine, who passed away this afternoon aged 60, was known as a colourful character.

And his meeting with the Gallagher brothers lived up to that billing.

Liam, 48, told Noisey in 2017: "We was in Argentina, and we’d done a gig.

"Next minute we’re sat in the bar having a f**king drink, and about 30 people come legging it in, like the Ant Hill Mob.

“We were going ‘Who the f**king hell’s that?’ Sting was at the bar crying cos he’d had his f**king dressing room robbed, and anyway we found out it was Maradona.

“And we were going like, can we go up and meet him, to the interpreter. And the interpreter said ‘Alright cool, let me go and square it with them.’

“He’s gone up, come back down and gone ‘Only the Gallagher brothers can go up.’ So we were like, ‘laters’.

“And his eyes were f**king like that [huge], and ours weren’t far off, and I just went like, ‘It’s a bit moody in here, let’s get a quick picture with him and f**k off.

“And he’s sweating his b******s off, and we turn around [to the interpreter] and he says: ‘He told me to tell you, if yous leave with any of these b*****s, he’ll have you shot.'"
