Erling Haaland got his former coach an amazing gift on Christmas Day

Erling Haaland surprised a former coach with a pair of Jordan 4 sneakers on Christmas Day last year.

Despite being obsessed with scoring goals, the Norwegian man mountain has a generous side to him off the pitch and felt the need to give Otto Addo a gift.

Oddo played for Borussia Dortmund and went on to work for the German outfit as assistant manager and 'talent coach' - a role he will resume after leaving Ghana following the World Cup in Qatar.

He's had a positive impact on Haaland's development into a superstar and the striker showed him his appreciation.

Addo took to Instagram to share a picture of he and Haaland with the Nike cleats, with the caption, "Merry Christmas, Thank you Erling Haaland."

Haaland has confessed to being something of a sneaker freak but he happily handed a pair over to Addo, who also helped nurture the likes of Jadon Sancho and Gio Reyna.

One wouldn't be surprised to find out that Haaland has gone big for his first Christmas as a Manchester City play when it comes to presents.

At Dortmund, when it was confirmed he was leaving the Bundesliga side, Haaland gave all players and coaches a personalised gift.

In total there were 33 players and 20 members of the coaching team and Haaland felt the need to thank them by gifting them luxury Rolex watches, as per Bild.

Each timepiece is said to be worth between £11,000 and £13,000. But Haaland also wanted to treat those behind the scenes and over 20 other employees at the club - such as physiotherapists, chefs and counselors - are said to have each received an Omega watch, worth £6,000 - £8,000.

Overall, Haaland splashed out just under half a million pounds on the farewell gifts.
