Erling Haaland’s post Schalke interview

When asked to explain that post-match gesture, the following exchange unfolded:

Haaland: Why not.

Interviewer: Is there a kind of message you’d like to send out?

Haaland: Yes.

Interviewer: Would you tell us the message?

Haaland: To my fans.

Interviewer: They’re everything to you and Dortmund?

Haaland: It is.

Disappointed that so many fans find Haaland’s lack of respect for the interviewers “hilarious”. He gives very brief answers and mutters to the press officer “bad questions”. He’s 19-years-old. It doesn’t do him any favours.

Hmmm, I’d say he isn’t programmed for basic manners. You’re a good player young man @ErlingHaaland but your arrogance with the media is unedifying. 👇
