With this farewell gift, Erling Haaland (21) was no slouch. According to “Bild”, the star striker, who is moving from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City, left each of his teammates a Rolex watch with a personal engraving – each worth 13,000 to 15,000 euros!
With 33 players, the total is between 429,000 and 495,000 euros. And that’s not all: the Norwegian also gave all supervisors a chronometer. There was a watch from Omega for the more than 20 employees, consisting of trainers, physios, doctors and cooks. Cost point: 5000 to 7000 euros per piece.
Watches in a special box with Haaland photos
The watches were specially delivered from Holland. A try-on service was made available to ensure that they fit everyone. The copies came in a special box, decorated with three photos: Haaland in a jubilant pose, Haaland with his number 9 and Haaland with the DFB Cup in his hand.
So Haaland spent over half a million euros on his farewell gifts. With his salary at the future employer Manchester City, this corresponds to a weekly wage: on the island, the 21-year-old draws 24 million a year, one or two million a month. (che)
