The pop superstar, who watched City leapfrog United to go top of the Premier League following their 1-0 derby win, made the surprise appearance after Sky Blue's boss Mancini had given his post-match press conference on Monday night.

Gallagher, an avid City follower, announced: "I love Mancini, he is nearly as cool as me."

The former Oasis frontman also delivered a cheeky jibe to United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Hinting why the Red Devils lost the derby that was billed as the most important game of the season, he said: " Ferguson must have been on the whisky."

Gallagher also posted a picture of himself with football legend Diego Maradona on Twitter following City's triumph. The Argentinian had been at the Etihad Stadium to cheer on son-in-law Sergio Aguero, who helped lead City to victory.

Gallagher, who is pictured shaking Maradona's hand, added the caption: "Maradona shakes the hand of God!" in reference to the goal the Argentinian scored against England in the 1986 World Cup.

The pop star has been a regular supporter at City's home games over the course of the season, often pictured in a Sky Blue shirt alongside his sons.
