Image for Leeds United: Fans react as Erling Haaland image emerges

A lot of Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to voice their thoughts at an image to emerge of Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland. 

Following side’s training session on Thursday, the Norwegian striker was pictured in his car leaving the training ground wearing Leeds shorts.

Will Leeds finish in the top seven this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 21-year-old was born in Leeds, with his father, Alf-Inge Haaland, playing for the Yorkshire club at the time.

Leeds fans flocked to the tweet relaying the images to emerge of the Dortmund striker as they voiced their delight at Haaland showing his respect for their club.

What exactly did these Leeds fans have to say?

“He’s Leeds and he knows he is”

“Pair of Alfie’s from 1999-00 (Away kit) that’s amazing”
“This is mint”
“The fact that he’s probably the most sought after centre forward in Europe and he supports Leeds and still wears the kits is absolutely brilliant.”
“Brilliant”

Haaland has been the subject of transfer speculation this summer, with a potential switch to the Premier League rumoured to be a possibility as Chelsea are said to hold a strong interest.

Going by the reaction of these Leeds fans, it would appear they are delighted to see Haaland recognise his roots in Leeds, with some cheekily hoping for a potential transfer before he retires.
