Erling Haaland had a successful Premier League debut for Manchester City on Sunday, though his interview skills might need some fine tuning after he was caught swearing twice.

The Norwegian scored both goals for City in a 2-0 victory over West Ham United, as the 60 million euro signing began to repay his transfer fee.
After the match Haaland was interviewed by Sky Sports’ Geoff Shreeves, with the occasion seemingly getting the better of the striker.
When asked if he would have liked to score a hat-trick in his league debut for City, Haaland replied: “”The passes will come, it should have been more today. I could’ve scored (hat-trick) before I went off, a bit s*** but it is what it is.”
Shreeves responded by telling Haaland to be “steady with the language”, which led to the striker swearing again upon realising his mistake.
Haaland then said “he forgot about the language” before wrapping up post-match interview.
Although the striker has some work to do in terms of his language, City won’t mind given his performance on the field against West Ham.
Haaland won a penalty in the first half before converting from the spot, while his second was a well-taken finish from a Kevin De Bruyne pass.
