In the striker’s post-match interview with Sky Sports he refused to answer a question on live TV out of ’embarrassment’.
The Norwegian broke the Premier League record for most goals in a season in yesterday’s 3-0 win against West Ham and the 22-year-old was asked how he planned to celebrate his historic achievement.

He responded, “I will go home and play some video games, have some food, sleep and then tomorrow I will come in and think about Leeds. This is my life.”
When he was asked to divulge which video games he will be playing by the Sky Sports presenter he admitted, “I cannot say It’s too embarrassing.”

Obviously, his refusal to elaborate has caused much speculation on social media.
One commented, “Definitely plays FIFA Player Career Mode as himself, I would.”
Another added, “Man plays Fortnite.”
A third tweeted, “If he’s openly stating that it’s “embarrassing” then it’s likely Fortnite or Minecraft”.
