Erling Haaland has enjoyed a social media meme a day after his furious referee rant during Manchester City’s clash with Tottenham.
The Norwegian was left fuming during Sunday’s Premier League clash between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur as he felt that Jack Grealish had been denied the chance to score a fourth goal for the club and seal victory in a dramatic game.
A thrilling encounter went down to the wire, with Grealish played through on goal in stoppage time, only for referee Simon Hooper to stop the game for a foul on Haaland. Hooper had appeared to wave play on initially, leaving the goal machine to angrily approach the referee on the pitch. At full-time Haaland also told Spurs’ Giovanni Lo Celso to “f*ck off” as he stormed down the tunnel.
The 23-year-old seemed to have cooled down after his outburst on the pitch as he shared a meme of himself on X with the caption, “Wtf that made me smile for the first time today.”
While the Cityzens might feel that they were robbed of a chance to score a late winner, they did not have the best of outings against Ange Postecoglou’s side. The champions came back from behind to go 2-1 up in the first half but then conceded their lead twice in the second and were extremely wasteful in front of goal.
