Manchester City has been on the spotlight for a while and yesterday’s dominion over Arsenal in a 4-1 landslide victory rocked their fanbase into a frenzy, edging closer to steal the Premier League title from the Gunrunners.
But the highlight of the match was when Norwegian footballer and Manchester City’s star Stricker Erling Haaland let down his hair towards the end of the match and scoring the 4th goal for his team in the match.
Since anime fans are all over the internet and they love to “weeb-fy” everything, they began comparing his long hair to Goku’s in his Super Saiyan 3 form. It started with the Portuguese football twitter account known as “Curiosidades PL” and the trend continued with fans bringing up characters from their favorite series, such as One Piece.

Haaland had so many chances during the match to score but failed, until he let his hair down. This made fans to say that he transformed like Goku to get a powerboost!

Things got more creative, as one fan decided to go even further beyond and sketch down fanarts of Haaland with SSJ3 Goku’s hairdo.
