Some Leeds United fans on social media have been reacting after footage emerged of Erling Haaland signing autographs wearing Leeds merchandise.
The Norwegian striker is one of the most famous and highly-rated footballers on the planet, and he’s never made it secret that he has an allegiance towards Leeds.
Of course, Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge was a Leeds player, and his son was actually born in West Yorkshire, and those ties to the Elland Road outfit have never gone away.
Even when playing in Germany for one of the biggest clubs in the world with millions of fans around the world, Haaland still makes sure to wear his Leeds colours, being spotted in a pair of the club’s shorts while signing autographs for fans.
As you can imagine, Leeds supporters had plenty to say about Haaland’s choice of attire, and it’s fair to say they love the fact one of the best players in the world is so open about loving their club.
Here’s what the Elland Road faithful have been saying on social media…

The fact that he’s probably the most sought after centre forward in Europe and he supports Leeds and still wears the kits is absolutely brilliant.

He’s always been Leeds! he was born here so if we ever get him we have his old man to thank
