Manchester City’s Haaland to play in Clash of Clans

One of the most popular mobile games in the world, Clash of Clans, has revealed a surprising new character – Manchester City football star Erling Haaland.

An animated version of Haaland will become the Barbarian King in the game, developer Supercell said.

Starting Wednesday, players will be able to recruit a Norse raider to join them or attempt to destroy his village.

A long-time Clash of Clans fan, Haaland said becoming a playable character was «really cool».

The fantasy video game shows players fighting to build their own village and raiding others to gain more power.

It has been downloaded more than two billion times since it was first released more than ten years ago.

Haaland’s character is the first in the game to be based on a real person.

«When we heard that Haaland was a fan of our game and that he wanted to work with us, it was truly a dream come true,» said Stuart McGaw, General Manager of Clash of Clans.

«Our team did everything we could to bring him, one of the best athletes in the world, into the world of the game so that our players could enjoy a truly special moment.»

Haaland, 23, posted a teaser for the game on his social media.

“From the field to the battlefield! I’m the new barbarian king in Clash of Clans,” he wrote.

In a statement, he added: “It’s been hard to keep it under wraps, but I’m excited to finally be able to talk about this epic partnership with Clash of Clans.

«I’ve been a huge fan of the game for a long time and I know everything about it, so to feature as a game character is really cool.»
