Fans were awed by Norwegian attacker Erling Haaland’s unusual hairstyle during training. Prior to the big game, Haaland was spotted sporting a new braided look. With his two goals against Southampton over the weekend, Haaland has now scored 30 Premier League goals.
Although it’s unclear if he’ll wear the same braids for the Champions League quarterfinal match, it was undoubtedly a departure from his typical hairdo.
On Saturday against Southampton, fans were adamant the Norwegian should sign with a shampoo company after he let down his locks to unveil a majestic look as he made his way down the tunnel.

Haaland would not be the first Man City player to land such a deal either.
Joe Hart, in early 2010, starred as the face of Head & Shoulders’ advertising campaigns, as reported by Daily Star.
Haaland: Manchester City greatest weapon?
As far as his football is concerned, Haaland has taken the Premier League by storm since moving to Man City in the summer.
Across all competitions, the 22-year-old has scored 44 goals, putting him in line to win the European Golden shoe.
Pep Guardiola will hope Haaland is the lucky charm to break his Champions League duck, as he is yet to win it since leaving Barcelona.
