- Haaland sends gift packages to children in Norway
- 1000 children received a package each
- Haaland scored his first hat-trick of the season against Fulham
WHAT HAPPENED? The Manchester City star could not be present in person but his gift packages were distributed to every football club in the Time municipality in Norway, a place where the striker grew up. Each child received a football, T-shirt, shorts, football bag and Aquafigure drinking bottle, a brand that Haaland endorses and invested in. Each package is worth 1500 NOK (£111).
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The Norwegian star has picked up where he left off last season as he has already scored six goals in four Premier League appearances including a hat-trick against Fulham over the weekend.
