Kim Kardashian’s Candid Response to Encountering Erling Haaland
Kim Kardashian recently shared a noteworthy encounter she had with Erling Haaland during her time in Italy. The Manchester City footballer has continually showcased his exceptional talent, amassing a total of 231 goals for club and country, with 20 of those scored this season alone.
Haaland’s remarkable abilities have garnered attention not just within the footballing realm but also from personalities beyond the sport. Kim Kardashian, a prominent figure in the entertainment industry and a successful entrepreneur, recounted her surprise upon seeing Haaland, whom she recognizes from watching football matches with her son, Saint.
Speaking with GQ, Kardashian described her excitement at seeing Haaland, stating, “I was in Italy and I see Erling Haaland, and I freaked the f*** out because I know my son would be so excited, it’s like his thing.” She humorously admitted to FaceTiming her son from the event, showing him the unexpected encounter, realizing she had become that person and apologizing for it.
Captured in a photograph together at a Dolce and Gabbana event, Kardashian has also been spotted attending an Arsenal match. She was present at the Emirates Stadium during the Gunners’ Europa League defeat against Sporting Lisbon, accompanied by Saint.
Expressing her son’s admiration for Cristiano Ronaldo and their support for Inter Miami, Kardashian shared her experiences at various stadiums, including PSG and Arsenal. She clarified her neutrality towards specific teams, embracing her role as a “soccer mum.”
Kardashian’s acknowledgment of Haaland as a remarkable talent might indeed contribute to the footballer’s list of famous admirers, a list that is bound to expand if he sustains his exceptional performance. Haaland, having scored 17 goals for City this season and recently honored with the Gerd Muller Trophy at the Ballon d’Or awards, continues to shine brightly in the footballing world.
