Fan Thought He'd Spotted Erling Haaland On Etihad Pitch During Manchester City Title Celebrations

It looks like an opportunistic fan was convinced that new signing Erling Haaland was on the Etihad pitch during Manchester City's Premier League title celebrations.

It was a dramatic final day of the season, to say the least.

After going 2-0 behind after an hour, Pep Guardiola's side picked up all three points against Aston Villa after second-half goals from Ilkay Gundogan [2] and Rodri sealed a historic win.


For the fourth time in five seasons, the Citizens lifted the Premier League title, pipping rivals Liverpool to the trophy by a single point. Here's some footage of City's post-match celebrations on Sunday.

When the final whistle blew, thousands of Manchester City fans ran onto the Etihad pitch to celebrate their title win.

And as they enjoyed the historic event, cameras spotted one fan who must have thought Erling Haaland was present following his big money move from Borussia Dortmund.

Twitter user @TheEuropeanLad posted screenshots of the moment alongside the caption: "Meanwhile someone must have thought he spotted Haaland while celebrating on the pitch."

Earlier this month, Manchester City confirmed the signing of Haaland after agreeing to pay his £64 million release clause.

The 21-year-old forward, who has scored 85 goals in 88 appearances in all competitions since joining Borussia Dortmund from RB Salzburg in 2019, has penned a reported five-year deal at the Etihad worth £21 million per season.

Haaland made his last appearance for the German club in their home match against Hertha Berlin on the final day of the regular Bundesliga season.

And a classy Dortmund were keen to give Haaland a proper send-off ahead of kick-off.

The squad gathered to applaud the striker during a presentation on the pitch and afterwards, Haaland walked over to the famous 'Yellow Wall' to express his gratitude.

Thoughts on the Haaland signing? Will he be a huge success for City next season?

Let us know in the comments.
