Norwegian Star Criticized after actions in Saudi

Bundesliga superstar

Even though Norwegian Star Erling Haaland did not play for Manchester City in the Club World Cup, the Brazilian media took notice of his behaviour in Saudi Arabia.


Everything happened in Jeddah, where Pep Guardiola’s team, Fluminense, is also ready to play. There, the Norwegian striker was spotted by Brazilian side families who were at a shopping.

The initial statements from Globo Esporte come from Paulo Henrique Ganso’s wife, Giovanna Costi. According to her, Haaland declined to have her son in a picture.

It was awful. Henrico is in dismay! He loved it! He no longer even wants his name to be mentioned. With only six kids, they were unable to interact and he didn’t even say goodbye from a distance. He acted as though they weren’t real.

Statements against Norwegian Star

“The kids were so depressed! What are the chances of running into such an idol? on the road. It was vacant and there was no one. It would have just taken five seconds at most! Anyhow. You learn even in suffering, right? These kids will undoubtedly learn something from today.
Samuel Xavier, the fullback for Fluminense, and his wife Karina Xavier both made comments on the Manchester City player.

“I still find it hard to believe that Haaland chose not to even glance at the kids who are his biggest fans, let alone say hello to them.”

Jeremy Doku, Kevin De Bruyne, and Erling Haaland travelled to Saudi Arabia with the Manchester City team, but they are all injured and will not be playing in the Club World Cup.

While Manchester City defeated Urawa Red Diamonds 3-0, Fluminense advanced to the final after defeating Al-Ahly 2-0. They are currently playing the tournament final on Friday night, and in addition to the greater drive that South American teams often possess, they are also furious at the English media for the way they have been treated.
