Nowadays soccer stars are as much celebrities as they are athletes, commanding hefty salaries and amassing fame with a global fan following. Consequently, A-list celebrities are frequently spotted attending soccer matches. Previously, a number of notable figures had watched Lionel Messi play against Los Angeles FC in an MLS fixture.
Kim Kardashian, who is herself an Arsenal supporter, has attended several important games while cheering for the Gunners. Recently, the American media personality and businesswoman bumped into a Manchester City star in Italy, which freaked her out.
Kim Kardashian’s unforgettable fan moment with Manchester City superstar
The famous American media personality Kim Kardashian has been occasionally spotted in attendance during soccer matches. She has attended several Inter Miami games in the MLS with her kids, proudly identifying herself as a ‘soccer mom’.
Notably, Kardashian is believed to be among Arsenal’s glamorous celebrity fanbase. She witnessed Arsenal’s Europa League exit against Sporting CP in the Round of 16 last season. Even the English winger Bukayo Saka FaceTimed the social media personality and her kids, as they promised to come back if Arsenal wins the Premier League.
Unfortunately, the Gunners eventually lost the Premier League title to Manchester City, who claimed their third consecutive title, completing the treble in the last season. Kim Kardashian recently revealed that she ran into Manchester City and Premier League star Erling Haaland in Italy, which made her freak out as she claims her son Saint is a huge fan of Haaland.
The Golden Boot winner and UEFA Best Player of the Year were present at a Dolce & Gabbana event in Italy earlier this year in July. As the duo are both ambassadors for the designer brand, they even clicked a photo together at the event.
City star Haaland had cozy dinner with girlfriend after Ballon d’Or
Despite claiming the UEFA, English, and Manchester City Player of the Year honors, Erling Haaland missed out on the prestigious Ballon d’Or 2023, finishing only behind Messi in the race, who claimed his record eighth accolade.
However, it didn’t ruin his evening, as he laid his hands on the Gerd Muller award given to the top scorer. Moreover, Haaland, with his model girlfriend Isabel Johansen, had a romantic dinner following the event in Paris.
The Norwegian striker had an exceptional debut season in Manchester City colors as he finished as the record-breaking top scorer in the Premier League with 36 goals and also the highest scorer in the Champions League with 12 goals. Haaland played a pivotal role in helping his side clinch the club’s first-ever Champions League trophy and achieve a treble-winning season.
