Nick Cannon opens up about the relationship between his children’s mothers

Noel Gallagher needed stitches after being headbutted during a soccer celebration that left him badly bleeding.

Funny enough, the man who accidentally headbutted the Oasis singer was actually the father of Manchester City soccer player Ruben Dias, who is one of Noel’s on-field heroes.

In recalling the incident with TalkSport, Noel said he attended the game between Manchester City and Aston Villa in England on Sunday. Man City, who Noel supports, staged a miraculous comeback late the match to win the Premiere League Championship.

“Let me tell you what happened to me yesterday. As the third goal goes in, there is absolute bedlam in the stadium,” he said. “Where we sit, Ruben Dias’ family are a couple of boxes up. I’m jumping around like an idiot, passing my son around like the Premier League trophy, everyone’s lifting him up.”

“I turn around, Ruben Dias’ dad runs straight into me, headbutts me, I’m on the floor, covered in blood,” he continued. “I don’t see the last two minutes, I’ve got to get taken down by St John’s Ambulance to get stitched up.”

Noel, though, hints that the inadvertent headbutt and the ensuing pain was worth it to see his team crowned.

“I’ve got stitches in my top lip, two black eyes. As I’m going down the corridor, Pep is running up crying and we hug each other,” he said, referring to Pep Guardiola, Manchester City’s manager. “He says, ‘What’s up with your face?’ And I said, ‘Go and be with your players!’ “


Because of the stitches, Noel said he’s unrecognizable right now.

“If you saw me today, I look like I’ve just arrived home from the eighties at Elland Road, I look like I’ve had my head smashed in. It’s unbelievable,” he said. “Lots of City fans are asking me what happened and I’m just saying, ‘You’ll never guess’. There’s not a mark on him [Dias’ dad]. He’s a big bear of a man. He almost knocked my teeth out. “

Man City won the Premiere League Championship after finishing the season with one more point than Liverpool in the standings.

“I’ve got rehearsals today,” Noel said, “but the good thing about that is I’ve got three Liverpool fans in my band!”
