Liam Gallagher Says Stefan Savic Is 'Dead' If He Sees Atletico Madrid Defender
| Last updated
Not exactly known for sugarcoating 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 up Phil Foden late in the second half of Tuesday night's Champions League quarter final, as the midfielder lay on the ground following 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 kicked off a huge melee of players.
Jack Grealish got involved, appearing to call Savic a 'c**t,' and the pair were later involved in the incident in the tunnel that required police to get involved.
Now former Oasis star Gallagher has repeated the name that Grealish called the former City defender, and then said he was 'dead' if the Montenegro star came across him, before deleting the tweet.
It wasn't the only post on Twitter that 49-year-old Mancunian sent during the match, and he clearly wasn't happy with what Atletico were doing.

Savic looked to have headbutted Raheem Sterling during the melee, which he also started, but managed to get away with just a yellow card.
The 31-year-old was a flop at the Etihad Stadium, having played for the Premier League team for just one season, 2011/12, before moving to Fiorentina after just 21 appearances in all competitions.
He started his feud with Grealish back at his old stomping ground in the first leg, when the City star came on as a substitute late in the game.
Despite not being on long, the former Aston Villa captain managed to rile up Savic, and another Atleti player, with the defender reportedly claiming "I'll have you in Madrid," a threat he attempted to carry through with in the tunnel.
The clash between the two, in which Savic also appeared to pull the forward's hair, also earned Grealish a new nickname from his teammates.
Gallagher was also happy to share his opinion recently, after City's enthralling 2-2 draw with title and Champions League rivals Liverpool, last weekend.
The former Beady Eye frontman called Jurgen Klopp's side 'lucky,' said Pep Guardiola's team had 'played them off the park' and said referee Anthony Taylor was a 'c**t.'
He will no doubt have his phone at the ready to post his feelings again this weekend, when the two sides meet yet again in the FA Cup semi final.
And who knows how much he'll crank it up should they clash in the Champions League final in Paris at the end of May, with both favourites to make it through.
