Erling Haaland escapes punishment for swearing on live TV.

Erling Haaland won’t be probed for his live swearing on TV during title celebrations with Manchester City. Haaland said the F-word while interrupting an interview between Jack Grealish and Sky Sports’ entourage as the broadcasters covered of the club’s celebrations.

However, Erling Haaland’s live swearing on television during Manchester City’s championship celebrations prompted an immediate apologies from Sky Sports. In their last home game of the season on Sunday, Pep Guardiola’s team celebrated winning their third consecutive domestic championship, after defeating Chelsea 1-0 thanks to a goal from Julian Alvarez.

Premier League won’t probe Erling Haaland for dropping F-bomb on live TV

Erling Haaland undoubtedly had a memorable afternoon as he celebrated winning his first title with Manchester City following an incredible first season in England having scored 36 goals so far in 34 league games. The Norwegian interrupted teammate Jack Grealish’s live interview on Sky Sports by acting out of character.

The ex-Borussia Dortmund striker was seen entering the frame and embracing Grealish. Next, he said: “I f***ing love you, you know that?”

Then, Sky Sports’ host Dave Jones quickly apologised for the coarse language. Grealish appeared to agree with his teammates, as seen by the praise he gave Erling Haaland and the bond he has with the former Borussia Dortmund player.

However, despite Jones’ apology, some Manchester United supporters speculated that the FA would have to step in and maybe exclude Haaland from the June 3 FA Cup Final. They cited Wayne Rooney’s two-game suspension for shouting into a television camera after scoring against West Ham in 2011.

According to Sun Sport, FA’s disciplinary officials do not think any action is necessary and that no preparations exist to launch an investigation. Using foul language when speaking to the media may not always result in charges.

Charges would only be brought if Wembley officials determined that the situation and tone of the remarks called for legal action, with each occurrence being evaluated on a case-by-case basis. In any case, time was a key distinction between the Erling Haaland eruption and Wayne Rooney’s historic explosion.

Rooney was charged and punished for using “offensive, insulting, and abusive language” in that context when he growled into the camera during a game. Haaland’s actions, on the other hand, occurred after the game had over and were motivated more by delight than by retaliation.

Meanwhile, a historic treble is still within the reach of Haaland and Man City, so they still have time to make sure their season is even more memorable. After the domestic season ends, City faces bitter rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup final. They then have the chance to win the Champions League for the first time in the club’s history. Next month in Istanbul, City will compete against Inter Milan in the final.
