Linesman Got Erling Haaland's Autograph After Borussia Dortmund's Champions League Match

The linesman for Manchester City vs. Borussia Dortmund bizarrely asked Erling Haaland for his autograph following the Champions League quarter-final clash on Tuesday.

Haaland was unable to get on the score-sheet against Man City - but he did grab an assist in his side's 2-1 defeat at the Etihad.

But his performance was worthy of an autograph through the eyes of the linesman who chased down the superstar forward in the tunnel.

The Champions League official whipped out his yellow and red cards from his pocket for Haaland to sign.

The Dortmund man obliged and signed away as he made his way back to the dressing room.

The strange moment between the linesman and Haaland got fans talking online.

A Twitter user wrote: "As if the match officials hadn't been amateur enough on the pitch, the referee's assistant then asks Haaland for his signature in the tunnel. I thought this was the Champions League?"

A second commented: "The linesman asking Haaland for his autograph in the tunnel! This is the level of officiating we get from Champions League."

A third sarcastically added: "Linesman appears to get Erling Haaland to sign his yellow card, equipped with a pen too. Completely normal behaviour for a referee in a Champions League quarter final."

While Haaland didn't score against Man City, he did show off his freakish power as he bullied Ruben Dias off the ball.
