BORUSSIA DORTMUND star Erling Haaland was involved in another awkward post-match interview last night.
The striker scored two as his team defeated Club Brugge 3-0 in the Champions League.
That took his tally in the competition to 14 goals in 11 matches – an impressive number by any standards.
However, after failing to claim the matchball, the Norwegian seemed to be taken aback by an unusual question from a CBS reporter following the win.
And it even left studio guest Jamie Carragher and his fellow pundits completely bemused.
The reporter asked: “Are you going to sleep lonely tonight?”
Haaland replied: “Erm… yeah.”
The interviewer then followed up by asking: “You’re not taking a girlfriend home right now, you didn’t score a hat-trick.”
The hotshot responded: “Didn’t score, no.”
And that led to the reporter finishing up by saying: “That was it, thank you.”
As the camera panned back to the studio, Carragher and his fellow pundits could not contain their amusement.
The ex-Liverpool defender said: “Jesus Christ, I thought we were all getting sacked!”
Former Manchester City star Micah Richards added: “I had no idea where that was going!”
However, maybe the interviewer’s questioning was not as weird as first thought.
Haaland said in November 2019 that he sleeps alongside his hat-trick match balls and described them as his ‘girlfriends’.
He said: “I sleep with the five balls for each hat-trick I have scored. I lie in bed and I feel good with them.
“I look at them every day. They are my girlfriends.”
