Erling Haaland has likely endured a very quiet few weeks over the course of the World Cup and an amusing Sky Sports advert may have offered a glimpse into what the Manchester City ace has been up to

While the bulk of the footballing world has been at the World Cup, Haaland has had to entertain himself at Manchester City. The imperious forward’s beloved Norway failed to qualify for the tournament, meaning he has had to remain at City’s training base.

Considering most of his teammates are established internationals for some of the elite football nations across the planet, training would have been very quiet for Haaland. And the former Borussia Dortmund ace made light of this during a brilliant advert by Sky Sports News.

In the advert, Haaland can be seen walking around a secluded and desert training ground. He tries to keep himself entertained by mowing the pitches and pretending his City colleagues are there.

He trains with free-kick men wearing Manchester City shirts emblazoned with the names of team-mates such as De Bruyne and Jack Grealish.

Speaking of the £100 million midfielder, Haaland is also filmed leaving an answer phone message for the ex-Aston Villa captain.

Before the competition began, Haaland expressed his disappointment about not competing at the World Cup with Norway. However, he did admit that he will relish the extra-time he can spend recovering.

“First of all, I wish I was playing in the World Cup of course. But, that’s the reality now, I don’t,” Haaland said during the World Cup.

“First of all, I will relax my body and my mind a lot and then I will train. What I will train on? Nothing special I think, it’s been going quite well I think, my first months in City, so I don’t need to do so much things, or so many changes to be honest.

“It’s about preparing myself for the next half of the season and being ready when the next game kicks in after the break.”
