Erling Haaland has revealed the team he is most looking forward to playing against as a Manchester City player is Manchester United.
Speaking at City’s player unveiling earlier today, Haaland was asked questions, including one from Twitter about the team he has his eye on the most after his £51million move.
‘Which team are you most looking forward to playing against?’ asked presenter Danny Jackson, as fans goaded the Norwegian for his response.
Haaland paused, before revealing City’s local rivals as his answer.
‘I have to say, I don’t like to say the words, but Manchester United, yeah,’ he said.
The response was greeted by cheers from the crowd and a loud ‘Yes!’ from the host.
Chants of ‘City, City, City!’ rounded up the reaction.
The unveiling saw the Champions introduce summer signings Kalvin Phillips, Julian Alvarez, Stefan Ortega Moreno and Haaland to their fans.
Supporters gathered around the stage at the Etihad Stadium West Reception with the event hosted by presenters Jackson and Natalie Pike, with special guests and pundits in attendance to provide insight into City’s signings.
The players were introduced to the stage one by one from 2pm, each giving a short interview.
All signings then rejoined the stage to hand out signed footballs to the crowd.
