Not exactly known for watering down his opinions, Liam Gallagher has ‘threatened’ to kill Stefan Savic after the Atletico Madrid defender’s antics against Gallagher’s Manchester City side.
Savic attempted to lift Phil Foden late in the second half of Tuesday night’s Champions League quarter-final as the midfielder lay on the ground after Felipe’s foul.
The defender wanted to get Foden off the pitch so the game could continue, with his side trailing 1-0 on aggregate, and the act of aggression sparked a huge melee of players.
Now former Oasis star Gallagher has repeated the name Grealish called the former City defender, then said he was ‘dead’ if the Montenegro star met him, before deleting the tweet.
It wasn’t the only Twitter message Mancunian, 49, sent during the game, and he was clearly not happy with what Atletico were doing.
Savic appeared to have headbutted Raheem Sterling during the scrum, which he also started, but managed to walk away with just a yellow card.
The 31-year-old flopped at the Etihad Stadium, having played for the Premier League side for just one season, 2011/12, before joining Fiorentina after just 21 appearances in all competitions.
He began his feud with Grealish on his old turf in the first leg when the City star came on late.
Gallagher was also happy to share his opinion recently, following City’s thrilling 2-2 draw with title rivals Liverpool last weekend.
He will no doubt have his phone ready to post his feelings again this weekend, when the two teams meet again in the FA Cup semi-finals.
And who knows how much it will increase if they meet in the Champions League final in Paris at the end of May, with the two favorites to qualify.
