Erling Haaland's Priceless Reaction When He Found Out He Would Be Playing Against Liverpool

Erling Haaland may be a boyhood Leeds United supporter but clearly he has a fondness of Liverpool too.

Footage of Haaland reacting to the 2019/20 Champions League group stage has been doing the rounds and the Norwegian was ecstatic when Red Bull Salzburg and Liverpool were paired in the same group last year.


The whole Salzburg squad on the whole were buzzing as they watched the draw live but Haaland celebrated as though he'd just scored a goal.


There were a few fist pumps as he embraced the teammates beside him - clearly over the moon about the prospect of playing at Anfield.

There's also another a video of him on the pitch at Anfield, in awe of the surroundings he finds himself in.


Haaland would go one better than just playing at the iconic ground, however. In a thrilling seven-goal thriller, the man mountain of a striker came off the bench to make it 3-3 after Salzburg were 3-0 down in the first half.

Mo Salah notched the winning goal nine minutes later but Haaland's potential Anfield audition was a strong one.

Now banging the goals in for Borussia Dortmund, where he has 24 in his first 27 games, the 20-year-old sensation has been linked with a whole host of elite European clubs.

And Salzburg sporting director Christoph Freund believes he's nailed on to move to Liverpool in the future - much to the excitement of Reds fans.

When Bayern Munich and Germany legend Lothar Matthaus name-dropped Liverpool as potential suitors during an appearance on Sky Sports, Freund was inclined to agree.

"That's where he will land," Freund said.

"He can play for any club in the world. With his mentality, his will, with his self-confidence he can make a mark on European football in the next ten years."
