Erling Haaland Is Not Good At Partying, So Dad Is Recalling Him To The Woods
Get the best email in soccer.
Borussia Dortmund’s 2019/20 season is over. Erling Haaland, the 19-year-old phenom who scored 16 goals in his first 18 BVB appearances, is free to do whatever he damn well pleases as a teenager that makes around $170,000 per week. That’s my take as an old poor boy.
But his dad — as all dads are wont to do — sees it differently.
Perhaps all the more aware of how precious your time is as a professional footballer after his own career was cut short by injury, father Alf-Inge Haaland has taken to social media to chastise his son for a video that surfaced of the Dortmund striker being thrown out of a club in Norway.

Alf-Inge wants his son to return to training the Norwegian way rather than the Brazilian way. We’re not sure if a chainsaw is any less dangerous than a Vodka Red Bull, but it looks like Erling is better at handling his heavy machinery.

I'm just glad my dad didn't throw shade @ me on Twitter when I was 19.
