Football fans have used a video game reference to describe the brilliance of Erling Haaland by saying he is now doing 'side quests'.

Viewers have joked that the Manchester City superstar has 'completed the main story' having scored 19 goals across his first 12 games for the club.

The 22-year-old was spotted helping referee Donatas Rumsas between his 27th and 28th goals on his 22nd Champions League appearances by returning his spray foam just a minute before finding the net for a second time.

With a second adding: "Story completion: 100%."

A third continued: "The fact that I don't have it in me to dislike this guy."

With a fourth agreeing: "Haaland is amazing. Sporting, courteous and exceptionally talented."

The Norwegian sensation needed only seven minutes to open his account for the evening against Copenhagen, grabbing a second after 32 minutes in a 5-0 rout.

The Spanish boss pointed over his shoulder while looking into the crowd with pure disbelief, then rubbing his hands together before clapping his new star striker.
