Haaland embraces cross-city rivalry
Erling Haaland has opened up on his relationship with Manchester United fans after the striker instead elected to join rivals Manchester City during the summer transfer window.
Haaland, 22, cost the Premier League champions around £51million and has hit the ground running. Here is what the Norwegian said during his in-depth interview with FourFourTwo magazine;
It’s all about banter and I enjoy that. I’ve already met some United supporters here in the city and we’re always joking with each other. Its about not taking everything too seriously. There are United fans in my hometown in Norway so I’ve always had to have a go at them. I’m used to this and I love it.
