Oasis legend Liam Gallagher blasts Uefa as ‘p*** flap brigade’ after beloved Man City’s Champions League ban

MANCHESTER CITY fan Liam Gallagher has taken aim at the UEFA bigwigs who slapped a two-season Champions League ban on his beloved team.

Dubbed the "p*** flap brigade" by the Oasis icon, a number of bods inside the governing body are named alongside their allegiance to rival clubs.

Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli, former Manchester United chief executive David Gill, Paris Saint-Germain chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi, Madrid city council member Jacobo Beltran and ex-Liverpool chief Rick Parry are all named.

Of those, only Beltran is actually on the Club Financial Control Body responsible for the punishment.

City were slapped with the ban for breaching Financial Fair Play regulations last week, as well as a £25million fine.

Immediately, the Premier League club denied all wrongdoing and are appealing the matter at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

With their fans backing City to the hilt, Gallagher joined in with his tweet slamming the UEFA members.

When told to "practice what he preaches" and "be kind", the 47-year-old singer replied: "That is me being kind I can be a lot worse."

The matter has certainly divided fans and Gallagher's followers responded en masse to give their opinion of the ban.

Twitter user Ryan replied: "Punished for breaking the rules what’s wrong with that."

Dun Kun agreed with the singer, commenting: "You know it LG, win the chumps league this year and then keep the trophy."

Another City fan wrote: "Love City hate UEFA."

But Keiron rebutted: "Always the victims. They must have evidence, simple as that. Don't cheat... Don't get punished. Rules are rules, every club has to operate within them. Bet Noels tiny head has fallen off, somebody should check on him."

Gusten called for Gallagher to switch his allegiance to Liverpool as a result of the ban, tweeting a Steven Gerrard gif captioned: "Come over to us Liam!"
