Erling Haaland Made Sure He Walked Around Manchester City's Badge Last Night
Eagle-eyed Manchester City fans noticed Erling Haaland avoiding walking onto the club's badge last night.
The Norwegian sensation, whose father Alf-Inge is a former City player, played at the Etihad Stadium for the first time in his career as Borussia Dortmund lost 2-1 in the Champions League quarter final first leg.
There are a number of pictures of Haaland in City shirts as a youngster, while he also attended games with his family and was in a City supporters Facebook group prior to becoming a big star.
Now linked with City and a plethora of European giants, fans of the Premier League leaders got excited by what he did as he walked onto the pitch.
He was the only Dortmund play to walk around a mosaic of City's badge on the floor just outside the tunnel, making a deliberate point of moving to his right so that he didn't trod over it.

The 20-year-old did the exact same action the day before when he and Dortmund trained on the Etihad pitch. Upon entering the turf, he appeared to say, "Beautiful, huh?!"
Having sung along to the Champions League anthem, bodied Ruben Dias in a freakish show of strength and registered an assist for Marco Reus, Haaland was seen engaging in conversation with match-winner Phil Foden in another moment City fans enjoyed.
'Agent Foden', we hear you say.
The former Red Bull Salzburg man has become such a big name that even the linesman wanted his signature, having been spotted asking for Haaland's autograph on yellow and red cards in the tunnel after the match.
