During his appearance on Logan Paul’s podcast, Erling Haaland shared a humorous anecdote about watching KSI’s videos when he was younger.
KSI and Paul have enlisted the talents of the Manchester City goal-scoring machine for their brand Prime, marking him as their inaugural sponsored football player.
Joining the ranks of Prime athletes like UFC stars Israel Adesanya and Alexander Volkanovski, along with Terence Crawford who promoted the sports drink during his fight against Errol Spence, Haaland is now part of their team.
KSI and Paul, both lifelong fans of Arsenal, also have a partnership in place with the Premier League club.
Adding to their impressive lineup, the YouTube personalities now include Haaland, who recently scored in Manchester City’s 2-1 victory over Sheffield United.
Following his collaboration with Prime, Haaland appeared on Paul’s podcast, where KSI also made an appearance on the same episode.
He was asked what it’s like being him, his relationship with his father and TikTok videos of himself, among other topics.
The Norwegian also revealed he used to watch KSI’s videos when he was younger, which provoked a brilliant reaction.

Haaland replied: “Yeah, I watched a little bit when I was younger.”
KSI reacted by saying: “Aw, I’m gassed!”
Haaland becoming a Prime athlete comes after he enjoyed an ultra-prolific campaign at Man City last season.
He scored a staggering 52 goals in all competitions as he helped his side to a famous treble, winning the Premier League, FA Cup and the Champions League.
And he’s already off to an impressive start in the 2023/24 term, having scored three league goals in three matches.
He opened the scoring at Bramall Lane as the Blues edged out Sheff United 2-1 last Sunday.
