Erling Haaland was mobbed by a fan yesterday after scoring against Sheffield United.
The fan went viral after Haaland’s 63rd minute header gave City the lead.
He was pictured jumping on the Norwegian superstar’s back but it turns out it wasn’t just any normal fan and infact was former world champion boxer Terry Flanagan.

Flanagan, 34, held the WBO lightweight title between 2015 and 2017 and lost just 2 of his 38 fights before retiring in 2019.
Things you didn't expect to see on Twitter today…
