Erling Haaland has joined the list of famous players ‘friendship’ with MMA boxer Khabib Nurmagomedov, after Cristiano Ronaldo and Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe signed the shirt and sent it to Khabib Nurmagomedov after the UFC star watched the French striker and PSG destroy Lionel Messi’s Barcelona in the eighth round of the European Cup.
Not long after, Erling Haaland also did the same. Khabib proudly showed off the Dortmund shirt signed by the 20-year-old striker – who is expected to join Mbappe in the future Golden Ball.
“Thank you very much, beast”Nurmagomedov writes on Instagram. The photo also revealed the message on the Dortmund Haaland shirt for MMA’s unbeaten boxers: “For Khabib, the champion”.
Haaland then also responded to the thanks from Khabib via Instagram: “Nothing, champion”.
Khabib Nurmagomedov is a “huge fan” of Real Madrid. Previously, Khabib was also given a shirt by Cristiano Ronaldo himself when the Portuguese superstar still played for the royal team.
That time, Khabib went to the stadium to watch the El Clasico match between Real and Barca. Later, Khabib also came to watch PSG play and received the shirt from Keylor Navas, the goalkeeper who won the Champions League three times with Real Madrid.
