“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.
