SOCCER superstar LIONEL MESSI has formed an OASIS tribute band - and is taking them on a secret European tour.[via Deadspin]
The Argentinian World Player Of The Year has revealed he performs as guitarist NOEL GALLAGHER.
Hitman Messi, 23, has also recruited a Barcelona team-mate to play singer LIAM - but won't say who it is yet.
He said: "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 says his band will tour soon - and says he's invited Noel to see them play.
He said: "We'll visit the UK. If you're at a pub or club where we are performing and see past our disguises there'll be a decent prize in it for you."
Sir Alex Ferguson described new signing Javier Hernandez as "first class'' after the striker scored against Manchester United as they went down to a 3-2 defeat by Chivas Guadalajara on the final game of their Americas tour.
"Chicharito was first class, Ferguson said. "His goal for Chivas was a marvellous strike. He showed his real qualities.
"Chivas played very well and they were very quick. They pressed the ball well and made things difficult for us. They deserved to win.
"As for us, we've been away for three weeks. We've done lots of travelling and I think the players need to go home and rest now.''
After completing the first 45 minutes for the Mexican side, Hernandez changed teams and played for United until the hour mark.
"It was always my intention to give him only 15 minutes of the second half as he is in the process of recovering from the World Cup,'' Ferguson said.
"He will now do some fitness training and endurance work when he arrives in Manchester and he will play more games.''
