Erling Haaland nicknamed “Daemon” by Man City teammates who say he’s spitting image of House of the Dragon character

    FOOTBALL sensation Erling Haaland has been nicknamed “Daemon” by his Manchester City teammates thanks to his striking resemblance to Daemon Targaryen from TV show House of the Dragon.

    The Norwegian striker has taken the Premier League by storm, scoring an incredible nine goals already this season – including two hat tricks.

    The 22-year-old bears an uncanny resemblance to the character played by actor Matt Smith in the Game of Thrones spin off prequel series.

    On Wednesday night, Haaland scored three in just 38 minutes during City’s 6-0 demolition of Notts Forest – proving he’s a “Daemon” in the box.

    The nickname has stuck in the dressing room, with the likes of John Stones and Phil Foden blown away by Haaland’s talents.

    A club insider said: “A few of the players are huge fans of House of Dragon and they have mentioned to Erling how much he looks like Daemon.

    “He loves a joke and thinks it’s funny. Daemon is unpredictable and so is Erling so their personality’s fit as well.”

    Fans have embraced the lookalike doubles with One Blues fan joking on Twitter: “Didn’t know Daemon Targaryen plays for Man City with the pseudonym Haaland on the back.”

    Another said: “As well as being a great player @ErlingHaaland is excellent as Daemon Targaryen in House of the Dragon.”

    Daemon is the volatile younger brother of King Viserys who is known as the Rogue Prince.
