Manchester United fans want Erling Haaland banned after swearing live on TV

Manchester United fans want Erling Haaland banned after the forward swore on live TV during Manchester City's title celebrations.
Grealish burst into laughter but those at Sky didn't see the funny side of things, apologising for the profanity. And United fans were quite clearly on the side of the broadcaster - and are now calling for the 52-goal forward to be punished.
He went onto miss the vital FA Cup semi-final against City, which United lost 1-0 without the star man, with City going on to beat Stoke in the final.
United supporters have called for Haaland to face the same punishment, which could see the Norwegian miss the FA Cup final between City and United next month.
"Assume the FA have changed their rules for the better after they banned a United player for swearing on live TV, ruling him out of an all-Manchester FA Cup tie at Wembley," said one fan.
"Seen United fans trying to get Haaland a ban for swearing on Sky yesterday," added another. "Thought they were being silly but then seen Rooney actually got banned for the same thing. Wonder if the FA and the Premier League will do the same?"
A third said: "Remember when Rooney scored at West Ham and got banned for two games for swearing? Grealish does it every time he’s interviewed. Haaland did it the other day. If it was United they’d throw the book at us."
It's unclear if any action will be taken against Haaland, who has history of swearing in interviews, but the forward is running the risk of missing games as City bid to win the treble.
While they still have two Premier League games remaining, the FA Cup final will precede the all-important Champions League final, and City will be desperate to have their star man available for the run-in.
