‘Oh s***, sorry!’ – Erling Haaland accidentally swear TWICE in first message since scoring twice on Manchester City debut


Erling Haaland silenced the doubters on Saturday as he found the net twice on his Manchester City Premier League debut against West Ham.

After a slightly underwhelming start to life in England during a Community Shield loss to Liverpool, the 22-year-old proved the difference-maker as Manchester City got their title defence off to a winning start.

While Pep Guardiola’s side did not start brilliantly, Haaland first won and then scored a penalty to open the scoring, displaying a fantastic turn of pace to force Alphonse Areola into a foul before finishing calmly from the spot.

In the second-half, Kevin De Bruyne found his new teammate with a pinpoint pass just as West Ham were growing into the game. Haaland, perhaps unsurprisingly, killed any chance of that with another cool finish.

Still, such his desire to keep scoring goals, the £51m signing took a rather dim view of the chance he missed for his hat-trick.

“It was a good start, nothing much to say,” Haaland told Sky Sports.

“Good start.

“I could’ve got a hat-trick… A bit sh*t, but it is what it is” .

After a few seconds of silence, the Norwegian was clearly blissfully unaware he’d just sworn.

And he was visibly taken aback by interviewer Geoff Shreeves asking him not to swear, he did it again.

He added: “oh s**t sorry”

“Also, now it is almost 30 minutes since I scored the last goal so I have to keep going.”
