Erling Haaland's injury update

Erling Haaland was a starter for Manchester City in their UEFA Champions League match against Copenhagen on Tuesday. The striker played the full 90 minutes, although he missed chances to be on the score sheet.

However, in a previous match against Everton in the Premier League, the Norwegian scored two goals and the report says that his grandmother died the same day.

Mail Sport stated that an obituary for Rasdal read: “Our dear mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, grandmother, and great-grandmother Tone Rasdal died peacefully today, aged 80.”

It is unclear if Haaland had been informed about the demise of his grandmother or not before he scored a brace against Everton. It is however believed that he had known about the incident before the Tuesday clash with Copenhagen.

A Norwegian website – Dagbladet – claims Rasdal was a teacher and a principal at a school in the region of Time, close to where she passed away in Norway

Rasdal had four children of which Alfie, the father of Erling Haaland is one of them. Alfie played for Manchester City during his football career and his son Erling followed in his footsteps.
