LONDON: Football star Lionel Messi has formed an “Oasis’ tribute band and is all set to tour with the group in Europe.
The Argentinean footballer performs as guitarist Noel Gallagher in the group and has also recruited a Barcelona teammate to play singer Liam but does not want to admit who it is yet.
“Our disguise is based on how Oasis looked in the mid-90s. We have our wigs, clothes and glasses sorted. I also spent a lot of time getting the mannerisms right,” Messi said.
The 23-year-old footballer insists his band will tour soon and said he has invited Noel to see them play.
