Ah, that’s our Noel.

Yes, the legendary musician that is Noel Gallagher has shown where his allegiance lies, and not to be biased, but we totally agree with him.

To give you some context, Noel comes from a Mancunian Irish family as his parents are from Mayo and Meath.

However, he joked about his connection to his ancestral homeland in a new interview about his beloved Manchester City FC.

Over the weekend, Man City won their fourth successive Premier League title and Liam was at the Etihad Stadium to witness it.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live after the game, Noel was asked about player Phil Foden’s prospects as he represents England at the Euros this summer.

To which Noel replied: “I’m not an England fan, I’m Irish.

“Goodnight!” he added before walking away.

Whether he was joking or not, we’ll take it!

This isn’t the first time Noel has shown his love for his Irish roots, as he previously wrote in depth about his heritage in his autobiography, Supersonic.

“Oasis could never have existed, been as big, been as important, been as flawed, been as loved and loathed, if we weren’t all predominantly Irish,”  he shared.

Couldn’t agree with you more Noel!
