Erling Haaland's Honest Verdict Of 'Brexit' Troy Deeney Left Jude Bellingham In Tears
| Last updated
Erling Haaland left Jude Bellingham in a fit of laugher after calling Birmingham City forward Troy Deeney 'Brexit' in a viral video.
The Borussia Dortmund duo sat down to read fan tweets for the club's official app and they discussed Bellingham's number being retired after he chose to leave St. Andrew's.
Bellingham said Birmingham are 'neck and neck' with Dortmund as the best team in the world and explained 'Big Troy Deeney up front' would beat Haaland's hometown club of Bryne.
It saw the 21-year-old look to the ground with a smile and say 'Brexit' to Bellingham who couldn't hold it in.

Deeney moved to Birmingham last summer after 11 years with Watford and he's scored four goals in 21 Championship appearances this year.
The joke even amused Haaland himself and he couldn't focus on the camera as Bellingham chuckled along.
'Brexit' is a jokey way of referring to a traditional British player and regularly used on social media.
Fans have reacted to the footage and Haaland x Deeney is a link-up they didn't know they needed.
One commented: "As if Haaland just called Deeney that, I love it."
Another said: "When I opened Twitter about 5 minutes ago I did not expect to see Jude Bellingham and Erling Haaland talk about Troy Deeney."
A third put: "This is such an amazing clip Haaland talking about Deeney is killing me."
While someone tweeted: "My new favourite video."
Haaland and Bellingham are good friends on and off the pitch and the duo have helped Dortmund to second in the Bundesliga.
Bellingham said after a 3-1 win over Mainz in October: "I stand here every week and tell you how great he is. The only thing more I can say that the player that you see isn’t a fluke. He doesn’t just turn up after a week on the sun bed, and go out and play. He works his socks off every day to be a better striker. And he's an even better guy than he is a striker!"
Haaland has reportedly agreed terms to join Premier League leaders Manchester City this summer.
City are ready to activate the Norway international's £63 million release clause which comes into effect soon.
Pep Guardiola's side are said to have offered Haaland a whopping £500,000-per-week contract.
That'd make him the highest earner in England and at City by quite a distance.
