Sun Sport – What The Haal?!
Erling Haaland takes to Twitter to CARRY ON rage at controversial ref Simon Hooper after Man City draw with Spurs
SUN SPORT SAYS ERLING HAALAND has carried on his blazing rant from Manchester City’s draw with Tottenham on social media.
Haaland was left furious with referee Simon Hooper after City were denied the chance to win the game in the 94th minute.
With the score 3-3, Haaland had picked up the ball almost at the halfway line where he was fouled and fell to the floor for a split second.
However, the 23-year-old wanted to play on and immediately got to his feet and played a pass over the top for the on-running Jack Grealish with the ref initially playing advantage.
But as the ball left his feet and headed towards Grealish, who had scored City’s third goal of the game in the 81st minute, behind the Spurs defence Hooper pulled the game back to the earlier foul.
Haaland and his City team-mates were furious with the decision and protested the call.
