Erling Haland He has six games with the shirt of the Manchester City and has already scored nine goals, which is why he has become the great star of the sky-blue team that is excited about winning the Champions League. In addition to connecting quickly with his teammates on the field of play, the 22-year-old has also done so off the field because in his locker room he has already endeared himself to everyone.

So much so that according to the site published The Sun the footballers of the English cast have given the Norwegian striker a new nickname: Demon. “Some footballers are fans of House Of Dragon (the new series of HBO) and they have mentioned how much he resembles this character, ”a source from the club told the British portal.

Daemon Targaryen, played by actor Matt Smith, is one of the protagonists of the Game Of Thrones prequel and his appearance resembles that of Haaland. The fact that he is blond and has long hair already generates a resemblance between the two and perhaps the soccer player’s scoring ability is linked to his Targaryen blood, a family that dominated Westeros for years, according to the books that inspired the popular series .
