Talk about having the world at his feet. In comes Erling Haaland with his Viking mentality and his golden hair, which suits well for a luxurious shampoo ad. In the previous campaign, he propelled Manchester City to a treble as the club won the English Premier League, FA Cup, and the prestigious UEFA Champions League. Moreover, his father Alf-Inge Haaland, a former Manchester City player, often follows his son at stadiums to show his immense support. Yet, where is brother? Does he show up for games?

Haaland’s upbringing in a sports-oriented family is evident in his powerful running style. Apart from being a soccer star, Haaland is a family man. During his first Premier League trophy ceremony, fans spotted the player celebrating his success with his loved ones. And in came Astor, who rarely attends soccer matches.

Despite Haaland coming from a family of athletes, his brother took his talents to another field. Astor is five years older than the Norwegian soccer player and a tad bit taller than the Manchester City striker. Although he comes from a sporting family, Astor studied entrepreneurship at the University of South-Eastern Norway and completed finance at the BI Norwegian Business School. According to his LinkedIn profile, Astor is an Investment Banker at Arctic Securities. He also completed an internship at DNB Asset Management.
