Erling Haaland has continued to impress in the Premier League since arriving at Manchester City this summer, and fans of other clubs are not happy about it.
The Norwegian striker joined Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund last summer for €60million but has scored 20 goals in 12 games in all competitions since his arrival.
Fans of various clubs have started a petition to get Erling Haaland out of the Premier League for a second time, after the youngster continues to prove to be difficult to stop.
Erling Haaland has scored 15 goals in the Premier League, eight goals from the goals scored by Mohamed Salah and Heung-Min Son who won the Golden Boot last season, but still has 29 games to play.
As per MEN, an account named Ten Hag’s Reds has likened Haaland to a “robot” – insisting it is “simply not fair” for him to “carry on in our country”. “It’s just simply not fair,” the request read. “We can make a change. Now is the time for us people to act. This robot should not be allowed to carry on in our country.” The petition has been signed by 646 people so far.
While, another appeal, set up by Shane Lee on Change.org, has gone even further after it quipped that Haaland’s goalscoring prowess is endangering “national security” and has called for him to be removed from the United Kingdom.
The description of the petition, which has so far been signed by 260 people, reads: “Erling Haaland is a serious problem. He shows up out of the blue, and consistently ruins the weekends of the hardworking people of this great nation. This issue must be dealt with in order to protect the mental health of millions in our society.
“To put it shortly, if things don’t change, it will only get worse. This guy is nine league goals away from equaling last season’s golden boot winner. Now is the time to take action. It was all fun and games at the start, but it is now becoming a matter of national security, as he is inflicting severe mental health issues on us all, even if you don’t know it yet.”
