lfie Haaland says he was escorted from his seat at the Bernabeu because Real Madrid fans were “not happy” with his celebrations after Kevin de Bruyne’s equaliser for Manchester City in the Champions League semi-final first leg.
Video on social media appears to show Erling Haaland’s dad taunting the home fans before being removed from his box.
Haaland tweeted: “OK. RM was not happy we were celebrating KDB goal.
“Other than that we had to move because RM fans not happy with 1-1.”
De Bruyne scored in the 67th minute to cancel out Vinicius Junior’s opener.
Haaland waved with both hands while smiling at the crowd below him, cupping his ears to the Real Madrid fans and gesticulating, while reports in Spain suggested he threw food at the supporters.
He tweeted again on Wednesday to say it was “not true” that he had thrown anything.
“We had some good banter with Madrid fans,” he added. “They were not happy when City scored. Typical.
“Then we had to move 50 meters away. Nothing more. All happy. Well nearly.”
The former Manchester City and Leeds midfielder is a regular at City’s matches, where his son has scored 51 goals so far this season.]
