Jamie Carragher and Erling Haaland were involved in a hilarious moment during the post-match interview after Manchester City’s win against Burnley.
Pep Guardiola’s men were 2-0 up at half-time after Haaland scored in the sixth and 35th minutes.
In the second half, Rodri added a third after the ball fell to his path inside the penalty area.
After the match, Haaland was being interviewed by Sky Sports and shared a brilliant moment with former Liverpool and England defender Carragher.
Carragher said: “So two nil, some goal, two nil.”
A confused Haaland said: “What?”
At this moment, Gary Neville came in with: “Apologies for his accent.”
After presenter Kelly Cates clarified what Carragher said, the former defender joked: “You are a great goalscorer, you'll never be a pundit!”
To which Haaland hilariously replied: “Thank you for that mate. Appreciate that.”
After the half-time whistle was blown, Haaland was spotted having a heated conversation with manager Guardiola.
Speaking about the incident, the Norwegian said: “It was because of the last action when Bernardo didn’t play me in – he [Pep] was a bit mad at me.
“Everyone sees I’m developing my game. I try my best every day – it’s a pleasure to work with Pep, I don’t know if there is anyone better for a young player as I’m still young, don’t forget. I just have the enjoy the chaos around me and perform on the pitch.”
Whilst Guardiola also cleared up the incident, he said to Match of the Day: “He wanted the ball in behind to him and that ball hasn't to be in behind. Sometimes you have to be patient to find the right moment.
“He was not frustrated, I am not frustrated. In football it happens. Don't be dramatic.”
