Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund visited his home country, Norway, after the German Bundesliga season officially ended less than two weeks ago. On Saturday, the 19-year-old centre-forward took to his Instagram account with over 4 million people to show the world that he and his father, Alfie-Inge Haaland, are chopping woods in preparation for winter in Norway.
In the picture, his father who is a retired footballer and who spent the best part of his football career at Leeds United was seen backing the camera in a Norway-rural setting while Erling Haaland was seen posing with a chainsaw. In the caption, the youngster wrote, “The winter is coming let’s chop some wood”.
One of the prominent people among his over 4 million Instagram followers that commented on the Instagram post was his teammate at Borussia Dortmund, Jadon Sancho. The 20-year-old England international who is highly wanted at Manchester United commented with a series of laughing emojis.
His club, Borussia Dortmund confirmed via their verified Twitter handle that Haaland took the picture while enjoying his break from football with his father.

Little did the club and indeed the followers of the footballer know that the youngster truly “#GOTfeelings” when he posted such a picture on Saturday. The next day, the social media was awash with a video showing the Borussia Dortmund star being forced out of a nightclub in his home country.
In the video, a bouncer could be seen pushing the football star out of the nightclub while he tried to stand his ground. After the bouncer succeeded in forcing him out of the club, the Borussia Dortmund star tried to force his way back but was held back and escorted away.
As at the time of publishing this report, Borussia Dortmund and the football star were yet to react to the video. Earlier, his fans were not sure that he was the one in the video but his father has reportedly made a joke off the incident which reportedly suggested that he was the one.
