Greater Manchester Police have established that they are probing Manchester City forward Erling Haaland for allegedly using his phone while driving. 

A video has surfaced of Haaland being seen making use of his mobile phone during the time he was driving a £300,000 Rolls Royce. 

The incident occured in New Islington, a locality of Manchester which is near the Etihad and he was photographed driving the exact car later that day.

Erling Haaland was supposedly snapped using his device while driving on Wednesday, the 15th of March 2023, just 24 hours after he netted five goals in Manchester City’s 7-0 hammering of RB Leipzig.

He was pictured on the 15th of March but the image circulated on the 24th of March

But the footage of the occurrence only got to the front burner on Monday night, the 27th of March 2023. A video circulated of Haaland using his device while driving in Islington.

In the video, the former Borussia Dortmund manager had his right hand on the steering wheel and he was seen holding a phone with his left hand. 

He was captured looking at his phone while the car was in motion. A spokesperson from Greater Manchester Police that was contacted said: “I can confirm that GMP is aware of the image and is investigating.”

Several road safety groups have lambasted Erling Haaland for the supposed occurrence, while a spokesperson of AA stated: “It’s a straight red with no excuses. Holding your phone while driving is dangerous. For someone so effective at scoring, this is definitely an own goal.”

The former Borussia Dortmund attacker is one of Europe’s hottest players after a magnificent start to his footballing career. 

Haaland netted 86 goals in 89 appearances while he was at Dortmund following an amazing time with RB Salzburg where he scored 29 goals in 27 games. 

The Norwegian is also wonderful for the national team of Norway as he has scored 21 goals in 23 appearances for the nation.

Erling Haaland was unavailable for his nation’s 3-0 loss to Spain in Malaga on Saturday and he did not play against Georgia in Batumi on Tuesday due to an issue to his groin.

His manager at Manchester City, Pep Guardiola, will hope that his injury isn’t a major one, as Manchester City strive to be the first club since Manchester United in 1999 to lift the UEFA Champions League, FA Cup and the English Premier League in the same season.
