Video shows Erling Haaland is the politest of all his Man City teammates

Erling Haaland might be the scariest striker in the world for defenders at the moment, but the Norwegian clearly has a heart of gold, as his interaction with Manchester City's kitman proves, in the video below.

It would be easy to think that Haaland was some sort of cyborg sent back from the future to destroy defences, such is his manner both on and off the pitch.

The blonde haired assassin looks like he fell from the skies naked, happened to land in the Manchester City training complex, and demanded someone handed over their kit.

On Wednesday night, he continued his ridiculous goal scoring form in the Champions League with the kind of goal that only him, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marco van Basten or an actual machine built to score would have been able to score.

It means that he has now scored 21 times in just 26 appearances in Europe's elite competition, for Red Bull Salzburg, Borussia Dortmund and City.

That's left him just one behind Luis Suarez's record in the tournament, and four behind Wayne Rooney, all before he's reached his 23rd birthday.

However, despite all of that, he clearly retains an incredible humility, as the video shows, with all of his City teammates not quite as bothered about their manners.

Haaland could be seen handing over his training top to the team's kitman, as they warm up, whilst the rest of his teammates simply throw the shirts in the vicinity, for the kitman to pick up.

You can see how much the simple gesture is appreciated by the backroom staff member, as he gives the Norwegian a simple tap on the back in recognition.

In the past, the 22-year-old's awkward, and quite frankly bizarre, post match interviews have added to the idea that he's just a robot perfectly programmed to play football.

One game for Dortmund, back when he was 19, ended with some very short, blunt answers, but not all his weird interviews have actually been his fault.

Another post match interview, following a Champions League game, ended with the interviewer asking if the then Dortmund forward would be 'sleeping lonely' that night.

On Wednesday night though he delivered two brilliant post match interviews, after his acrobatic winner against his former club, one alongside John Stones.

The centre back had equalised for City, after Jude Bellingham's opener, with a surprising smash from outside of the area, as it looked like Pep Guardiola's team would struggle to break down their visitors.

However, after the match, Haaland argued with his teammate that he scored the better goal of the match, and also told Des Kelly the defence didn't keep him quiet, because he scored.

He later told beIN Sport that his dream is to take five touches in total in a game and score five goals with them, which isn't too far off reality right now...
