However, in the new social media campaign the legendary Brazilians and Argentine player have claimed the deal should have been theirs – as their characters would’ve been a better fit.

Ronaldo said: “can’t believe they put Erling Haaland in Clash of Clans. I am Ronaldo the First! Nobody tears down defences like Ronaldo the First.”

Ronaldinho added: “I know they already have a wizard in Clash of Clans, but I create even better magic with a football at my feet.”

Meanwhile, Sergio Agüero continued: “Everything I do, he does it too, whether it’s breaking records or playing video games. And now he’s in a game? Give me a break!”

However, responding to the comments, Haaland commented: “These guys are all legends and I’d have them in my clan any day.”

According to the mobile gameHaaland’s partnership is the first time a character has been launched, based on a real person.
