Oasis fans have recalled a wild story from when Liam Gallagher met Diego Maradona, after the football legend died.

The World Cup winner died at his home in Argentina, on Wednesday, aged 60.

Following the sad news, famous faces from around the world, including Naomi Campbell, David Beckham and Piers Morgan, paid their respects on social media.

Liam’s fans also took the opportunity to remember the Wonderwall singer’s interview where he lifted the lid on the moment he met the footballer.

Chatting to Vice in 2018, he remembered getting a drink with his brother in Argentina when Maradona walked into the bar with his entourage.

‘We were going, “Who the f**king hell’s that?’ We found out it was Maradona,’ the 48-year-old told the publication.

‘He’d gone upstairs with a load of fucking madheads and all these women of the night. We were going like, can we go up and meet him? Like that, to the interpreter. And the interpreter said, “Alright cool, let me go and square it with them”.’

Liam and Noel were eventually allowed to mingle with the footballer, who was ‘in the middle of the room doing football tricks’ and ‘sweating his b******s off’.

‘His eyes were f**king like that. Ours weren’t far off,’ he continued. ‘I was going, “It’s a bit moody in here, let’s get a quick picture with him and we’ll f**k off.”’

However, things took a turn when they spotted the interpreter and Maradona having a chat, with the interpreter telling the pair: ‘He told me to tell you, if yous leave with any of these b*****s, he’ll have you shot.’

 

Not an ideal situation.

Making light of the situation, Liam honoured the late star with his own tribute on social media.

‘Met Maradonna not once but 2x and he was the real f**king deal scary but beautiful hash tag blessed [sic],’ he tweeted.

Maradona is widely regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time for his part in Argentina’s World Cup win in 1986.

Famous faces flocked to Twitter to pay their respects to him, with boxing champion Mike Tyson posting: ‘The Hand of God, Maradona has left us.

‘In 86 we both won our championships. They use to compare the two of us. He was one of my hero’s and a friend. I respected him so much. He will be greatly missed.’

Piers Morgan added: ‘I’m reading a lot of nonsense about the “tragedy” of Diego Maradona.

‘There was nothing tragic about him – he was one of the greatest sportsmen in history, beloved by millions, and lived his life to the full parameters of fun & craziness. He didn’t die wondering. Most do.’
