Erling Haaland appears in Clash of Clans as Barbarian King
Manchester City star Erling Haaland has been unveiled as a surprise new character in popular mobile video game Clash of Clans.

From Wednesday, May 1st onwards, players will be able to play as Haaland and partake in thrilling football-themed challenges and adventures throughout the game.

Haaland, a self-confessed fan of the game, will be the first real person to appear in the game and will do so as the Barbarian King in a temporary, football-inspired event.

Speaking in a press release, Stuart McGaw, general manager of Clash of Clans, said:

When we heard Haaland was a fan of our game and that he wanted to partner with us, it was really a dream scenario.

Our team did everything we could to bring him, one of the world's best athletes, into the world of the game so our players could enjoy a truly special moment.

Clash of Clans sees players battle to build their own village and launch raids on others to seek more power.
