Norwegian striker Erling Haaland keeps a secret when it comes to the iconic celebration, which has been regularly seen since his arrival at the Citizens.
What did Erling Haaland say?
The Norwegian international has had a scintillating start to life at the Etihad Stadium since moving from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, scoring 14 goals in his first 10 appearances. Erling Haaland usually celebrates by holding one finger behind his ear and pointing the other to the sky in a gesture that has become his trademark, but refuses to offer a full explanation of the signature move.
Asked to talk a bit about the celebration while on international duty in Norway, Erling said no, he doesn’t really feel the need for it. According to Erling Haaland, he loves to party and it’s a big part of his life.
The Manchester City striker went on to admit that he was also surprised by the early form for the Premier League champions, but the player has always been confident in delivering goods in the final third with a high-quality supporting cast on hand to provide him with service.
Erling Haaland added that while he did not expect to score 14 goals, he would be honest. But the Norwegian player says that the team that scored 100 goals last season, that he would get there and score goals, he was absolutely sure of it.
