Erling Haaland’s father Alfie pokes fun at Arsenal after they beat his son’s Manchester City side in Community Shield final… as Norwegian star once again struggles in season curtain-raiser for second consecutive campaign
- Alfie Haaland has poked fun at Arsenal despite his son’s poor day in front of goal
- Erling Haaland failed to shoot as Man City lost the Community Shield final
- But his father reminded people of the perils of underestimating the Norwegian
Erling Haaland’s dad, Alfie, has mocked Arsenal in a tweet laced with sarcasm – and reminded everybody not to get complacent after Erling drew a blank in the Community Shield final.
Manchester City’s star man failed to register a shot and was substituted 64 minutes in as they fell to Arsenal on 4-1 on penalties after a 1-1 draw.
However, fans will recall Haaland’s woes in last year’s final and the mockery that sprung forth before he humiliated the critics with a record-breaking 52-goal season.
Alfie tweeted: ‘Well done Arsenal, great win. You must be favourites for the league now’ with a winking emoji.
It was a retweet of another post suggesting that Premier League fans should not get overly excited by his one-game dip due to how he blitzed last season following a poor Community Shield final.
Erling Haaland had a day to forget in the Community Shield as he failed to shoot vs Arsenal
Haaland scored twice on the opening day of last season away at West Ham before going on to bag a further 50 goals as Pep Guardiola’s men stormed to the Treble.
Arsenal got the better of City today in a statement victory for Mikel Arteta after the club’s big summer spending spree.
After being pipped to the title last year, the expectation is for Arsenal to challenge for the title once again.
