Borussia Dortmund striker Haaland seen signing autograph to linesman

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland was happy to give his autograph to a linesman last night.

While Haaland himself fluffed his lines as Manchester City beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League tie, he was happy to write one for the assistant ref in a bizarre moment caught on camera.

After the full-time whistle blew Haaland - who grew up a Man City fan - could be seeing having a friendly chat with Phil Foden.

City boss Pep Guardiola was bemused saying: "I've never seen it before but it happened."

The hosts won the game with a 90th-minute goal from Foden after Kevin de Bruyne opened the scoring and Marco Reus scored an equaliser.
