There's only one thing Noel Gallagher seems to take more seriously than himself: soccer.

But the former Oasis songwriter/guitarist and diehard Manchester City FC superfan displayed his playful side when Gary Neville -- a retired legend for rival Manchester United -- asked Gallagher to autograph a guitar.

Gallagher wrote:

Dear Gary
How many caps have you got for England!! How many do you think you deserved??
I'll tell you. F----n' none!!
Lots of love
Noel Gallagher
M.C.F.C.

A "cap" is European sports slang for a player's appearance in an international game. Gallagher also covered the front of the guitar with "M.C.F.C." in honor of Manchester City. Check out photos Neville posted to Twitter:

Gallagher is set to release ‘Chasing Yesterday,’ the upcoming second album by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, in March.
