Very unhappy during the final minutes of the Premier League between Manchester City and Tottenham on Sunday, Erling Haaland became the subject of some amusing diversions.
This will be remembered as one of the striking images of the weekend on European grounds. At the Etihad Stadium, during the 14th edition of the Premier League match between Manchester City and Tottenham, Erling Haaland was summoned against the referee, at the discretion of the world’s cameras.
The cause was a decision by English referee Simon Hooper which angered the Norwegian striker and several of his teammates. While the Citizens were held in check by the Spurs (3-3), the referee refused to let the game continue after a foul on the former Borussia Dortmund player, while English midfielder Jack Grealish headed alone towards Guglielmo Vicario’s goal.
A new « What is this mess »
Ridiculed for his bloodshed, considered disproportionate by some, the native of Leeds was hijacked on the internet. Thus, the user inserted Erling Haaland on the famous work by the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch, entitled “The Scream”. This parody was apparently appreciated by the person himself, who reacted with fair play on the social network Twitter.
