New Man City star Erling Haaland plays football with children on a beach and shows off a new hairstyle ahead of Man City debut
ERLING HAALAND warmed up for his Manchester City debut with a kick on the beach with young fans.
The £51.4million striker showed off his tight control with six kicks using both feet in the surf on a Marbella beach.
The 21-year-old then passes the ball to another sea-soaked player to continue the goalkeeper game.
The tanned and toned Norwegian hero also showed off a new look with his signature long blonde locks tied up in two cornrows.
A video of Haaland enjoying his summer vacation with the impromptu kick was posted to Instagram on Sunday evening.
He got over 750,000 likes in 16 hours and prompted one commenter to say it shows how “down to earth” he still is.
It’s the latest proof that the Leeds-born global superstar is always happy to give fans some time.
In October, he made a lucky pitch invader’s day by posing for a selfie on the pitch with himself in front of 64,000 fans after helping secure victory for his former club Borussia Dortmund.
Haaland is set to join Pep Guardiola’s pre-season squad next month when City travel to the United States for friendlies as part of their build-up to their Prem title defence.
He could make his non-competitive debut in games against Club America in Houston or Bayern Munich in Wisconsin in late July.

Haaland, who has scored 86 goals in 89 appearances for Dortmund in Germany, has signed a five-year contract at the Etihad.
City saw stiff competition from other European giants to finally land their trademark summer chant.
