The English and Spanish press have written for a long time that the two are lovers. Haaland and Haugseng Johansen have never confirmed this. The Daily Mail has pictures of her arriving at City’s gold party on Sunday in similar sky blue pajamas as the Premier League’s top scorer.
The Bryne girl also joined when Haaland was to be immortalized with the prestigious trophy. She – like him – grew up playing football in the small town three miles south of Stavanger.
Isabel Haugseng Johansen played an age-specific match for Bryne as recently as last autumn. With uniform number 99, she scored when the club’s 19-year-old team beat Tjensvoll/Sif 7–0.
She, like Haaland, knows a bit about scoring goals. According to the statistics of the Norwegian Football Association, Haugseng Johansen is listed with 23 Bryne scores since 2017.
She was also present when Haaland was presented as equipment manufacturer Nike’s new “poster boy” in London in April. Haugseng Johansen wore the Nike logo clearly visible at Oxford Circus.
Based on the photos from the photo agencies, Erling Braut Haaland posed with almost an entire football team on the Premier League stage. A total of nine people can be identified in the intense family jubilation at the Etihad Stadium.
His two young sisters Nora and Sofie were allowed to stand in front with the Norwegian flag and the Premier League trophy.
At the back left was Alfie Haaland’s wife, Anita Haaland Strømsvold. Then the brother Astor Haaland with his girlfriend Thea Vigre (partially hidden), sister Gabrielle, father Alfie Haaland, Isabel Haugseng Johansen and the “fixer” Ivar Eggja.
There are many indications that he also celebrated with a new generation in the family. He threw a jubilant youngster in a Manchester City kit into the air on the pitch. Sister Gabrielle has children.
The father Alfie Haaland has always been central to his son’s career. He manages most things in “Team Haaland” and is often present during the matches. Now the “manager” had a very nice day with all five of his children.
VG has not received a response to Haaland senior’s request on Monday.
His wife, Anita, had worn a Manchester City kit for the occasion in the league gold.
Together with agent Rafaela Pimenta and financial adviser Egil Østenstad, father Alfie is at the helm of the ship which, since 2017, has brought Erling Braut Haaland from Jæren to Molde via Salzburg to Dortmund and Manchester.
Alfie Haaland has the full overview of contracts, money and inquiries. The son does not need to hear about anything unless it is absolutely necessary.
Ivar Eggja should also have part of the credit for that. The former Canada-resident Järbuen has been father Haaland’s fiancé.
Eggja (on the right in the video below) is seen driving an extravagant Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
He is a paid “fixer” who helps with practical tasks. This involves assisting with everything from travel planning, handling events Haaland attends, and various purchases.
Erling Braut Haaland can fully concentrate on improving technique, physics and understanding of the game in close collaboration with Pep Guardiola. The Manchester City manager also had his family with him on the big day.
Haaland was pictured on Sunday with his hand on the shoulder of Guardiola’s father Valentí.
