Erling Haaland shows off new look with braids and bulging leg muscles as Man City striker ‘activates Viking mode’ ahead of Leeds return

    Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland has ‘activated viking mode’ ahead of his return to Leeds with a post showing his braids and terrifying muscles.

    Haaland travels to the city where he was born while his father Alf-Inge was featuring for the Whites, and the game is LIVE on talkSPORT.

    Leeds will be scared enough to welcome back a man in startling goalscoring form with 18 goals in 13 Premier League games, and his latest post serves as another warning.

    Known not only for his world-class marksmanship on-field, Haaland has won plenty of fans worldwide with his charm off of it, and he isn’t afraid to be different.

    Posting his braided hair in training at the Etihad Campus, the Norwegian captioned his post ‘Viking mode ACTIVATED’ to show off his new look.

    And that may be keeping Leeds defenders up all night, with Haaland’s current ‘mode’ already unstoppable, without him needing to activate another.

    On top of the Viking braids and caption, there was also a triple-whammy for Jesse Marsch’s men, with the photo highlighting Haaland’s monstrous leg muscles.

    City’s photographer had managed to capture his bulging calves and hamstrings in full flow, with the former Leeds lad now one of football’s most fearsome opponents.

    Haaland missed the World Cup as Norway failed to qualify, but he’s clearly been working hard during his month off, while also enjoying some well-earned rest.

    City’s season resumed against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup on December 22, with Haaland scoring in a 3-2 win.

    But despite his ridiculous form, Pep Guardiola’s champions head to Yorkshire eight points off of leaders Arsenal, with no margin for error.
