Erling Haaland calls out Greek newspaper for reporting he spent €500k on Mykonos lunch


Norwegian footballer and Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland has been joining many other international celebrities in living the luxury life on the Greek island of Mykonos.

While the footballer is entitled to spend his money where he pleases, Greek newspaper ‘Sportime’ reported on Saturday that Haaland spent €500,000 in six hours at a restaurant in Mykonos and left a €30,000 tip for the staff. The report also claimed the footballer himself drank four bottles of Cristal Vintage champagne at €70 each.

After being picked up by English journalists, Haaland responded to the reports on Twitter, calling it ‘fake news’.

The venue sells itself as the perfect locale to enjoy the “lavish beach life of Mykonos.”

While Haaland may not have been expecting an apology, he certainly won’t find one from the newspaper, who stuck to their story in a subsequent article, saying they would “forgive” Haaland for making his “fake news” claim.

Haaland joins Manchester City forward Rihad Mahrez enjoying their time in Greece, alongside Los Angeles Lakers and NBA legend Magic Johnson. Lionel Ritchie is another celebrity currently living it up on the Greek island of Mykonos, celebrating his birthday with his children Sofia Richie, Nicole Richie and Miles Richie.
