Erling Haaland Says Sevilla Goalkeeper Bono "Cheated" In Ruthlessly Cold Post-Match Interview

Erling Haaland gave a ruthlessly cold post-match interview following his Champions League heroics for Borussia Dortmund against Sevilla.


Haaland bagged a brilliant brace as his side knocked Sevilla out of the competition last night.

He opened the scoring in the 35th minute before converting a penalty just after the break.

Though the match referee ordered a retake after Bono was off his line, with Haaland slotting past the Sevilla goalkeeper second time around.

And speaking in his post-match interview, the Norwegian phenom claimed he does not know what he said to him and only used the word his opponent shouted.

"He was too far [off his line]," the star forward said.

"If he stood on his line, I would have scored that one - and that's what happened on the second one.

"I missed and then he cheated. Then I took it again and scored when he didn't cheat.

"When he was screaming in my face after the first one, I was thinking 'it will be even better to score another goal' - and that's what happened, so it was nice."

Asked what he said to Bono, he replied: "I don't want to say. I don't know what it means but I said what he said after I missed the first one. Maybe it's karma in this world."

It has been suggested that Haaland yelled "unlucky" at Bono after scoring the retaken penalty.

Haaland made history as Dortmund saw off Sevilla, becoming the quickest and youngest player to reach 20 Champions League goals.

It took him just 14 matches to hit that milestone.
