Erling Haaland is one of the biggest stars at Manchester City and in the Premier League. Among all the other things related to the striker, his song has become a big hit in the blue side of the Manchester community.
The song perfectly encapsulates the fun-loving attitude of the Norwegian international with its dance beat. The voice tone in the song also sits well, considering the song is about such an imposing figure on the field. But the song lyrics are the ones that take the cake.
The lyrics of the song are: “Haaland Haaland, He is a blue just like his dad, Now he is at the Eithad. Ha ha ha, Haaland, hey. Haaland Haaland came to us from Germany, he is here to win the Champions League. Ha ha ha, Haaland, hey. Haaland Haaland, Yorkshire-born, Norwegian lad. Roy Keane tried to k*ll his dad, Ha ha ha Haaland”.
The song made its debut in 2022. It includes interesting bits of his story and connection with Manchester. The song touches on the fact that Erling’s dad, Alfie Haaland, also played for Manchester City.
It further addresses the 2022 move of the striker from Borussia Dortmund and the biggest reason for the English club to sign the striker, which was to win the UCL. The song moves to the origin of Erling Haaland as it points to the fact that Norwegians were born in Leeds, United Kingdom, in the Yorkshire region of the country.
Finally, the song ends by playing on the interesting fact that Alfie Halaand was severely injured by Manchester United’s legend, Roy Keane, during his playing days. The injury hampered the career of Alfie and added another story to the rivalry of Erling Haaland and Manchester City with Manchester United.
Erling Haaland gets annoyed at a TikToker singing his song
The song is a hit in Etihad Stadium whenever Haaland is on the scoresheet for the Blues. However, the song wasn’t hitting the same note at the Ballon d’Or ceremony. In the 2023 Ballon d’Or ceremony, various social media influencers and streamers were given access to create content around the gala.
IShowSpeed was among the few lucky ones who walked the red carpet and created viral content at the ceremony. However, on the flip end, a social media influencer annoyed the Manchester City striker by filming him while singing his song beside him.
The video was uploaded by BBC Sport on their TikTok account, where a social media influencer moved towards Haaland while singing his song “Haaland Haaland“. The Norwegian striker saw the influencer and took it as an invasion of privacy as he asked the influencer, “What are you doing, man?” Seeing that Haaland was annoyed, the influencer backed out.
The night was full of mixed emotions for the Manchester City striker as, on one side, he won the Gerd Müller Trophy for being the best goalscorer in the last season. However, on the other hand, he finished runner-up behind Lionel Messi for the Ballon d’Or award in a controversial decision, as per experts and fans.
