Erling Haaland ‘p*****’ outburst will remind admirers Man Utd of Bruno Fernandes

Ealing Haaland’s “p*****” outburst after Borussia Dortmund’s latest defeat will remind admirers Manchester United of Bruno Fernandes’ attitude.

The Red Devils have been linked with a move for the Norwegian sensation throughout his time with the Bundesliga side, where he has scored 38 goals in 40 games.

But the 20-year-old has been without a goal since his brace against Borussia Monchengladbach in a 4-2 loss.

And footage has emerged from that defeat last month which shows his seriously competitive attitude.

Speaking in the post-match press conference with a furious face, Haaland said: “We let in four goals and it's not good enough.

“We have to analyse and we have to train on it, because this is not good enough."

When asked if there were any positives to be taken from the defeat, the forward held nothing back in his response.

“It's a hard question as right now I'm very p*****, so I don't really know,” Haaland added.

“We have to keep working. In one week, it's a new game and we have to get our minds ready for the next game, because this is awful to lose.

“I’m so p***** now, you have no idea.”

While Bundesliga viewers were left in shock at his expletives, interested club United may see some similarities between the 20-year-old and Fernandes.

The midfielder has made a massive impact since arriving last January from Sporting Lisbon, scoring 30 goals and making 20 assists for the Red Devils.

But the 26-year-old has also brought a fierce attitude for winning that has seen him scream at players in the dressing room.

This was clear to see after United’s 3-3 draw against Everton, which allowed rivals Manchester City to go five points clear.

    “Too many bad results at home and this can’t be possible.”

    United could make a move for Haaland over the summer – but they will have to compete with Real Madrid and City for his signature.
